With just her voice and piano, artist Léoa delivers songs that are so timely right now, exploring life’s ugly realities, particularly those which pertain to the injustices of a male-dominated world. Presented lullaby- style, “Little Girl” depicts the schoolyard “boys against girls” origins of an adult- world syndrome. “Shattered” is perhaps her darkest, most haunting song, conveying a woman’s psychological torment after her date-rapist is exonerated. “The Light” casts its net wider, in a more universal––but no less haunting––direction. It takes a special confidence to pull off this kind of material, and Léoa has it. Uncluttered production and mixing enable every pain-soaked word to ring through.
