It’s an Upbeat Piece of Indie-Tinged Pop
By Laura F
Listening to the upbeat, emphatic pop tones of Berlin-based songwriter LEEPA – It’s hard to believe she’s achieving these levels of success at just 21 years old. Her songwriting form resembles that of a much more experienced artist, and she perfectly combines this with youthful and energetic pop production.
With her previous two singles ‘Misery loves Company’ and ‘Fiction’, Leepa showcased the ruins of an unhappy relationship. In her new project, she explores the feeling of loss after a broken-down friendship.
Speaking on the new single she states: “I’m sorry, are you?“ is not a love song, it’s a song about friendship. “Losing friends can be more painful than losing a partner – especially when the friendship has broken down due to circumstances that are no one’s fault. Even though time passes, distance prevails and life moves on at a brisk pace, one always mourns a true friendship. One may regret something or the longing may wear one down -.but some people you have to love from a distance.“
