Your Fearless Leader release “Lime”

On January 10, San Francisco’s Your Fearless Leader (YFL) released new single “Lime.” The tune is infused with horns, strings and a kind of gypsy jazz and rock with a baroque pop undertone.

Get To Know: Your Fearless Leader

Are you sick of indie rock? Yeah, me too. But every now and then a band breaks out of that insipid, uninspired ocean of sameness and releases a song that pulls me back into the genre. Your Fearless Leader is one of those bands. Featuring arresting violin lines, propulsive drums, and anthemic sonic arrangements, the four-piece reminds you that this genre can still capture your attention in an overly-cluttered digitized century. The band recently released their debut EP, Retrospection, four songs aching with bittersweet melodies and impressive musical chops. Closing track "Father's Son" stands out as the arena-rocker highlight, with [...]
