With the release of her new single “Can’t Get Enough” (produced by NOCTURN), Kat Leon‘s (Holy Wars, Pep Squad) endless expansion of herself as an artist and musician continues. The fiery new single pendulums between the Los Angeles artist’s strident cries and the song’s ecstatic drops, riding a fine line of ecstasy and pain that burns within the song. Leon really flexes her vocal prowess on the single, rallying throughout its slow-burn until she reaches its delirious chorus. The impressionable song is featured in the After We Fell movie trailer.
Leon’s music from various projects is often used in films and with “Can’t Get Enough” it’s once more crystal clear exactly why. Whether it’s her scorching sonics or equally smoldering vocals, she lends her music a cinematic epicness. Her new single potently captures a rapturous evocation of desire — but also the fact that pleasure and pain are often two sides of the same coin.
The release of “Can’t Get Enough” comes hot off the heels of a busy year for Leon. The previous year saw her release a slew of singles as a solo artist, including a sublime cover of Eurythmics’ “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)” and “I’ll Make You Love Me.” But Leon has also continued to tend her many other projects. As Holy Wars she operates as a duo with Nicholas Perez, releasing riotous rock pieces “Get Mine” and blistering rager “TV DINNER.” While as PEP SQUAD she mixes volatile brat-pop swagger with her explosive rock spirit on songs like “It’s My Party” and “Watch Me.”
