“Glam meets psych, meets pop, meets rock, meets the world. I Know Leopard are a blast from the past, blending the sounds and stylings of Bowie, John Lennon, ELO and more into a joyous celebration of sound… I Know Leopard are setting themselves up for truly exquisite greatness.” – Atwood Magazine
I Know Leopard continue to establish themselves as one of Australia’s most unique and exciting art pop outfits. The Sydney quartet explode their emotions into a musical kaleidoscope, finding catharsis in the ethereal bliss of pop’s plastic, proggy past. At the core of it all is dedication to timeless songwriting.
Over the past few years, six consecutive singles have been added to high rotation on Australia’s national radio broadcaster triple j, accompanied by sold out shows around the country and appearances at reputable festivals such as Laneway and Lost Paradise.
In August 2018 the band released the single ‘Landmine’, which has truly been the outfit’s biggest statement to date. Indicative of the lofty ambition inherent in their debut album, Love Is A Landmine which is slated for release in 2019, ‘Landmine’ marks a new beginning for the band. It revels in shimmering 70’s soft rock glory but it is the channeling of this influence into something exotic and new that has truly dazzled audiences.
Released in February 2019, their follow up single ‘Heather’ has people predicting that I Know Leopard’s album will be one of the breakthrough Australian released of the year. Amidst the current musical climate, I Know Leopard are something of an anomaly. Gloriously out of step and bringing a sense of luxury, glamour and brains with them.
