first press: 300 Black (5 test presses)
The Leap Year‘s second album, The Narrowing, is an album of stories – heartbreak, want and boyhood dreams – in no particular order.
The follow-up to 2007’s horizon searching With a Little Push a Pattern Appears, is filled with lush arrangements that envelope sonic markers embedded along a mostly-fictional trajectory. Inescapably Australian and reluctantly mature, The Leap Year charge through some timely self-reflection setting nostalgic rock songs adrift in their wake.
Artwork again excellently executed by Melbourne’s Dylan Martorell. LP comes with download code.
