Release Date: Out Now
Austrian artist Lea Santee is coming straight outta Vienna with new single ‘Wine’ and it’s a playful little number that certainly surprised me. There’s an effortless energy to this that falls in to the Dua Lipa category with hand claps and undulating instrumentation not to mention the Spanish guitar that just wanders in at some point. Santee’s voice is dusky and sultry in all the right places but this certainly sounds more Mediterranean than Alpine which is probably the reason for the aforementioned surprise. Still, regardless of my misplaced preconceptions, this is a gorgeous slice of classy alt-pop that I would recommend you pop on your summer playlist for next year (or winter holiday).
