With their impeccable eye and appeal to both mainstream and indie crowd, Leaked by Auburn is a collection that shows an intense yearning to stand out and create a satisfying musical experience for every kind of music lover.
Hailing from St. Paul, Minneapolis, Auburn churns up soul, R&B, and pop melodies to inject a hefty dose of energy in every play. First track in the 15-track collection is Meet the Parents that acts as a fulfilling appetizer into the songstress’ potential. Here, Auburn taps into well-loved sonic formula to reach out to a wider scope of listeners.
Jealous, on the other hand, shows a bolder Auburn that could drop fierce lines in between solid beats. My First Time follows in a more upbeat tone. Listen as this danceable piece talks about a girl’s initiation to adulthood and reality.
Meanwhile, Remake closes the collection with a flair of piano keys and the same pop/R&B approach, staying true to the album’s theme.
All in all, Auburn‘s album Leaked does not try hard to be “indie,” instead, this artist stays true to what she loves – pop and R&B – and it actually works for her. Auburn is brimming with talent and her music has mass appeal that it’s just a matter of time for this artist to fully come out of her cocoon and fly.
