“Leaving here” is a modern, swinging take on the underground 60s dancer by Eddie Holland, complete with girl group vocals, brass and swirling organ.
“This song kind of came up naturally when I was trying ideas out for a new record. It was almost like revisiting my source material. I grew up around the Garage Rock revival and there’s a bit of that in there. I set on an arrangement with two drummers, with a big push to the ‘4’ chord for the bridge, with organ, horns and a call-and-response vocals to really make it swing. It’s almost like a high tempo R&B vignette of all the things I’m into.”
