Listen/review: Low Leaf - Pupil of the Universe

Words by Evan Crandell @ec_onthe1

Low Leaf takes us into the metaphysical with 'Pupil of the Universe.' The first single from the Los Angeles artist’s upcoming album Palm Psalms: A Light to Resolve All Darkness offers ethereal, swirling soundscapes and a heady yet essential message. Her delicate, harmonized voice is at the forefront of the mix as she asks in humility for the universe to guide her understanding of life and wisdom. While she has often used electronics and loops in the past, here she employs live instruments that reinforce the song’s emphasis on eternal truth. Low Leaf is on her own wavelength spiritually and musically, but we can be thankful that she has brought us along for the journey.

Low Leaf will release Palm Psalms: A Light to Resolve All Darkness on October 14 via her own imprint CreatorDIY.
