Leyya made quite a name for themselves over the past five years with two highly acclaimed albums, live shows in more than 20 countries, a number of awards, over 20M Spotify plays, global advertising campaigns, and numerous TV and film placements.
I’ve Been Down, their new song, oozes emotion. Listening to it will have an impact on you. It’s all very atmospheric. Leyya’s musical world is made up of organic melodies, comforting ryhtyms, and distinctive vocals.
I’ve Been Down appears on Leyya’s EP, Longest Day of My Life. The de-tabooing of depression is a central concern of Leyya with this work.
