Hey, tell us a bit about yourself.
We are LE SON and we are an electronic duo from South/East London. We’ve been writing together for around 3 years and have just released our sophomore single ‘Ava / 1008’ on squareglass.
Where did the new single come from?
We’d been working on some new material for a while and felt this was the right moment to release what we’d been working on. We are both really excited to share with you our lead single, ‘Ava’.
‘Ava’ is inspired by London commuting, overheard conversations, glimpses of newspapers and headlines. In the lyrics Emily experimented with disconnection and tried to put herself in a younger frame of mind to envisage how it would feel to experience the loss of a friend.
Is there more content in the pipeline?
The second single ‘1008’ has been part of our live set for a while now and after a good reception from playing it live, it felt right to put together a recording and make it a part of the release. ‘1008’ looks at themes of entrapment in the big city and also the struggle of finding your feet when feeling alone.
We are really happy to have had the opportunity to collaborate with some visual artists surrounding this release too; beautiful photography from James Parker and collage work from Kristina Corre, who also curated the artwork for our debut ‘Without A Sound’.
What’s on the horizon for you?
Yes, we are always writing and working on new material, and we are so eager to share more music with everyone soon.
We’re hoping to get some more live dates in the diary… But firstly, catch us live at Bussey Building, London as part of ‘SE Collective Bang Gang’ this Thursday, July 6th.
