i woke up this morning to the irresistibly catchy hooks of “some girls”, the latest single released by my pals leeson. i’ve known these guys for quite a while, photographing them whenever i make it (in time) for their gigs, and it’s been great just watching the band grow through the years in ultimately feeling comfortable having fun and being themselves. that’s something evident in this song, a wry laddish rumination on the unexplainable idiosyncrasies of girls we’ve all met and probably dated before, complete with swirling melodies and choppy rhythms that take a life of their own. with the promise this band is showing, i’ll try my darndest best not to be late for their upcoming baybeats gig on august 29 at the esplanade, and promise to have great photos and stories to tell.
