Leif Vollebekk has unveiled the second single from his forthcoming album New Ways (out 1st November via Secret City Records) with a music video for ‘Transatlantic Flight.’
‘Transatlantic Flight’ takes its time, and wraps itself around you. Leif found inspiration in a host of places – from sticky Rihanna choruses, the dark sizzle of Leonard Cohen, the visual mastery of Richard Linklater (he drops a couple references in the opening verse of the song). The song builds to a soaring euphoria, a wall of rich sounds and trembling strings as Leif pleads: “so why don’t you come on over / start talking to me / one thing I can tell you / you look good when you’re tired / on a Transatlantic flight.”
New Ways is out 1 November. Preorder here.
