LEYYA launches new single HEAT!
Austrian electro-pop duo LEYYA share new single ‘Heat’. The new single comes with a fantastic video. Director Marie-Therese Hildenbrandt says about the video: „The song Heat for me has a very strong energy. We wanted to transfer that energy using the concept of a girl gang. The video itself has a tinge of an ironic undercurrent. The play with violence and weapons was used as both a critical and humorous view on female emancipation and the suspense-packed times we live in.”

The new single precedes the release of their new album ‘Sauna’ this Friday January the 26th and follows the success of their previous singles ‘Zoo’, ‘Oh Wow’ and ‘Drumsolo’ which received vast support from tastemakers such as Pigeons and Planes , Wonderland Magazine , Clash magazine , Complex , Konbini , The 405 , Consequence of Sound , BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens and Phil Taggart , BBC 6 Music ‘s Lauren Laverne, Virgin Radio Playlist , Radio 1 Playlist in Germany and Austrian FM4’s Radio Charts amongst others.
Sophie Lindinger and Marco Kleebauer have been on a high streak of victory – which has seemingly jolted to life on its own accord. Their debut album Spanish Disco was the catalyst – creating a cause and effect whirlwind of huge festival performances and radio play, as well as television and film appearances. Hit single ‘Superego’ quickly racked up over 3 million plays on Spotify and over 560,000 Youtube views.
These many triumphs resulted in tastemaker recognition including European festivals and performances at The Great Escape (Brighton, UK), Liverpool Sound City (Liverpool, UK), Tallinn Music Week (Tallinn, EE), PrimaveraSound (Barcelona, SP) and Electronic Beats at Reeperbahn Festival (Hamburg, DE) – before finally headlining Popfest (Vienna, AT) back home, where they played to a crowd of 20,000 in front of the famous Karlskirche in Vienna’s beautiful City Centre. LEYYA’s performance at Iceland Airwaves was called one of the “ most exciting ” on display by Consequence of Sound ; while Musikexpress was similarly enthusiastic about their show at Eurosonic Nooderslag , calling it “ The best concert of this year’s Eurosonic Festival.”
‘Sauna’ is out this Friday on LasVegas Records/ Plus One Records. Pre-order the album here.
