With just a few days until Sydney quartet I Know Leopard release their debut full length album, Love Is A Landmine the folks over at that blog aggregator who refuses to acknowledge the website you are reading’s existence for 9 years and counting have graciously premiered a full album stream to hold you over until Friday.
Y’all, this record. *chef’s kiss* It’s just so damn lovely. Literally. As previously mentioned lead vocalist Luke O’Loughlin has discussed how the album is about the different aspects of love. "I’d be lying if I said it wasn't an album full of love songs,” he explained, “But not always in the classic romantic sense. It reflects on experiences where attempts at love are met with confusion, pain and alienation. The record also explores the importance of learning to love yourself before you can successfully love someone else."
Without a doubt I can confidently say that Love Is A Landmine is the glimmering slice of lovestruck indie pop perfection that your ears very desperately need to have in their life immediately.
FYI there’s still time to pre-order the album over on their website. I will most likely be treating myself to an early birthday present with the tote + LP bundle should you want to follow my lead.
