Organ Thing of The Day – We’re rather enjoying the left-field musical output of New York”s LEYA at the moment, are they a side project? Are they the main focus? Leya, enough of the capital letters, Leya are “the project of Marilu Donovan (Eartheater, Aerial East, Julie Byrne) and Adam Markiewicz (PC Worship, The Dreebs), today shared a self-directed video for “WAVE,” the second single from their forthcoming album Flood Dream”.

.

“The video features our two friends,” explain Leya on their enveloping track, “disciples of 34th generation Shaolin warrior monk and activist Shi Yan Ming, founder of the luminous USA Shaolin Temple in Manhattan, where RZA, Rosie Perez, Wesley Snipes, Jim Jarmusch, and Tricky have all trained. They are part of the wave.” The song follows the album’s lead single “WEIGHT,” which features the operatic-pop vocalist GABI as well as Leya’s surprise-dropped collaborative EP with Eartheater, Angel Lust, released December 2019 via PAN. On March 6th, Leya will celebrate their album release show in New York City with Eartheater and head out on a North America tour, including dates opening for Brooklyn black metal band Liturgy. Flood Dream will be released March 6th on CD/LP/Digital and is available for pre-order via NNA Tapes.
