Tackling growing anxieties in the modern world with his introspective new album is Leo Sawikin with Row Me Away. Filled with winding emotionally driven productions and soul-bearing lyricism, the singer holds nothing back for his latest project and invites us into his own personal world. Touching on everything from depression to finding solace in newfound ventures, the artist perfectly encapsulates what it feels like to find something new and challenging in a sometimes difficult world.
“It reflects this feeling that you’ve missed out on the best the world has to offer,” explains Leo. “It’s kind of like trying to figure out what you do after everything falls apart. The pandemic, which none of us expected, gives the songs more power. In the old world, we could distract ourselves with our day-to-day lives, but now we’re forced to stare down just how fragile everything is.”
Boasting a selection of nostalgic rhythms and folk-pop-tinged productions, the artist introduces us to a different side of his sound, and we’re basking in every soulful element this weekend.
