“Your love is like an aeroplane / Going down then flying high / You take me for a ride” chants Leon Of Athens in his new single “Aeroplane.” Taking us through a soundscape of strumming guitars and airy percussions, Leon Of Athens breezes lovesick lyrics where he implicitly confesses his tendency to fall back to a tumultuous relationship despite his consistent attempt to escape it. Stream below:
