Leah Capelle is an emerging band from LA, who has a clean and positive pop sound.
Despite the band identifying with being alternative rock/pop, judging by their recent release called Joshua, I found the band’s style to be classic ‘modern country’. They remind me of Wilson Phillips and Carrie Underwood – very G-rated, very safe-listening.
Joshua is described as a song about ‘friendship and freedom’ – a positive message that is rarely explored in typical young rock bands – and reminded me of songs in the Christian soft rock genre.
In the music video, the band’s look conflicts with the sound. Whereas I was expecting to see early Taylor Swift’s ‘Love Story‘ clothing style, the Leah Capelle band sport dark lipstick, heavy eyeliner and revealing gothic clothes.
Nevertheless, the song is professionally produced and the band has undeniable talent.
