#382 Alva Leigh – Modern Love Song

What is a modern love song? That’s the question Alva Leigh asks in her debut single, which is out later this month. Leigh, who is out of Nashville via north London, uses an appealingly restrained palette of handclaps, piano and layered vocals to set the tone for what is indeed a very modern love song. “[It’s] a song about staying in love,” she explains. “It’s about sticking it out even when the odds are stacked against you and staying put when everything else around you is moving.”
