Leogang are a five-piece rock band from East London, playing a hybrid of alt-rock, punk, funk and everything in between. The band have recently released their debut EP entitled ‘Shots are Coming’ which is available to listen to on all music platforms.
It usually takes me a few listens to an EP for me to fully get into it, especially if its an EP from a band I’ve recently discovered, however, this was not the case when I pressed play on this debut EP. Within the first few seconds of listening to ‘Budapest Sex Lights’ I was sold, the guitar riff instantly made me stop what I was doing and, listen, I was hooked.
It’s impossible to not listen to incredible EP from beginning to end, the strong vocals, layered guitar riffs and brilliant instrumentals will have you hooked within seconds and you will be up on your feet dancing around as if you are at one of the bands gigs, which I think we all wish we were at right now, especially after listening to this EP.
The band high energy and memorable songs instantly grabbed your attention, their unique sound packs a punch and draws you in. As I was listening to this EP I was taken back to the early 00’s, the bands sound and way the EP made me feel I felt like I had gone back in time and I was listening to the bands I use to listen to back in the early 00’s who made me fall in love with music.
It was hard for me to pick my favourite track from this EP as each track has its own anthemic sound which makes it special. If I really had to pick one that has managed to stand out a little more from the other tracks it would be ‘Shots are Coming’, this single starts off a little slower compared to the other tracks but instantly builds into a memorable track full of energy and lyrics that make you stop and listen to every word. I sat tapping along to this single and instantly had goose bumps, there was something so magical about this track.
This is an impressive EP, the band have managed to create an EP that shows off their musical talents and combined classic sounds we love to hear with their own unique sounds, each track has its own special sound which makes them stand out but at the same time they work so well together in the EP. This was the first time I had heard from this incredible band and it’s safe to say I was impressed with what I heard, and I am a fan of this brilliant band. The only bad point I have is the EP ended far too quickly, I was left wanting to hear more.
A fantastic debut EP from a talented band, if they keep making music like this I can see them having a bright future.
