by Walter Price

It’s that time to temporarily remove yourself from the week’s agitations and sink into some fresh music. And a fine suggestion is this stylish and groove-heavy indie gem, “Boys Not Right”, performed by Dublin singer/songwriter Aleigh [Aoife Leigh].

You’ll find the subject matter familiar; a boy is a trickster, a heartbreaking so-and-so and the heroine of the track has weathered the storm and is offering a fair warning to the next prey. And after a few listens you’ll start to realize that this songwriter is a studied fan of multiple genres, eras, and voices. As she utilizes layers of varying styles and her dynamic vocal range to tell this darkly evergreen tale.

And if ‘jazzy-slink post-punk pop’ was a thing, “Boys Not Right” would be its calling card and Aleigh its purveyor. With sprinkled nods to the cherished sounds of KT Tunstall, Siouxsie Sioux, and 60s-era French pop, this track is perfect for adding to your weekend/summer playlists…

Despite being initially signed as a solo singer-songwriter, A.LEIGH realized quite early on that she was immediately more comfortable within a full band sound which allowed the variety of her self-penned songs to alter between solitary ballads, Jaunty rhythms, and vivacious guitar-driven alternative rock.” – bio
