London-based Italian artist Leon Seti teaches us the art of mastering self-love in his new video “Silver Lining,” a chest-swelling synthpop single that is built on the emotional softness of heartfelt pop. If you are into Jessie Ware, Kimbra, or Bjork, then Leon is up in your alley. “Silver Lining” is a softcore, aerated piece that continuously hits bluesy notes while remaining within the boundaries of pop equations. The tempos hop weightlessly as the lyrical drama enfolds and Leon takes you from loss to love. His vocals are marveling indulgences that capture the tragic and fearful absence of a significant other, but also the self-enlightening realization that you can find the same emotional satisfaction within yourself. The video has theatricality to it where Leon’s choreography illustrates a form of personal intimacy through mesmeric motions. Watch below:

“‘Silver Lining’ is about love delusion. The song is about trying to find the happy ending within oneself instead of looking for it in other people, especially those who got away.” shared Leon.

The track is the first glimpse of Leon’s upcoming sophomore album Cobalt, which he hasn’t shared any details yet. The record is the follow up of his album Genuflection where Leon explored themes of lust and depression. We don’t know what Leon would be exploring in Cobalt (aside from love, of course), but feel free to ask him in person or FB/IG:

11/1 – Hope and Anchor (London, UK)

1/18 – O2 Academy Islington (London, UK)
