Dutch artist Leah Rye released a spectacular new single called “All I Got” last week, with an accompanying music video that fits the song tremendously. The release is her second single of 2020, following March’s “High.”
Lyrically, the song captures Rye deciding whether to fall back into a relationship with someone or move on. That indecision and emotional conflict plays out in the music, which strikes the perfect balance between a dark, rock-infused verse and a bright, stadium-sized chorus. It’s all tied together beautifully by a feathery, piano-driven pre-chorus that steals the show. The video gets shakier and shakier as the song progresses to further illustrate the weight of bouncing between two extremes.
Overall, I think “All I Got” is an excellent introduction to Rye as an artist and would stand out to fans of bands like Florence + The Machine, Evanescence, or Radiohead.
About Leah Rye:
Leah Rye challenges you to dream with her in a world encompassed in mystery and melancholy. After entering her imagination, her haunting presence ensures it’s impossible to leave by creating a tension reflected in her music as alternating grooves, dark sounds and vast contrasts. Her voice acts as a beacon through the nebulous mist formed by many interlaced styles; where Radiohead meets Lianne La Havas.
