If Sing Leaf’s new album feels like it’s caught between worlds it’s because it’s intended to be just that. Not only has Sing Leaf, AKA David Como, released new track, Forever Green, but we can also indulge in Not Earth, thanks to Tin Angel Records. The Fountain caught up with David to discuss the LP as well as his favourite venues .
TF: You have a new single out, what has the reception been like to Forever Green?
People have received this song as the most immediately accessible and pleasurable one and that feels good. It was written without doubt, and it validates the instinct – to make a song that gets in and out, make it sweet, sugar.
TF: How would you sum up the track in one sentence?
A too good memory.
TF: What is your plan for the remainder of the year, after this single release, did I note an LP?
Record came out on the 25th of September. Have been working on new songs in this new world, a conceptual record about long haul trucking, northern motels, the frozen expanse …. kind of a meditation thing.
TF: Where is your favourite venue for playing live, where is the next place you look most forward to gigging?
The best place I ever played with the King’s Place in London mainly because the venue stage was so accommodating and helped me feel less nervous. It felt like a safe environment, with great sound, they were taking care. At this point I would be happy to play anywhere, just to have the energy exchange with an audience. I feel like I was just starting to understand how to ride and control those waves, make them feel good for me and someone watching, and then it’s been about 7 months with no shows. To play live again will be different and maybe easier now, because any performance will be special.
