You know, Leighton was always "cool". Even behind his rather sad and sappy songs on Lydia his low tenor flows always maintain a rather calming vibe, even during his most intense moments he remain rather restrained. But now with his collab with producer Matt Malpass on this Cinema debut-Leighton "cool" comes out a swinging and the dude is ready to party.
The Cinema's tunes are built in the sense of gorgeous indie pop production of Lydia but it's more electronic driven side and feel good vibe has made the album something you rather dance to in the street vs. crying on your pillow. Regardless, The Cinema's debut is hella fun and stands as another example of music that's not designed for, but is meant to be on radio.
