Spirits of Leo: Asylum

Asylum is the third and final single from Gossamer Blue, the new full length by New York post-punk/shoegazers, Spirits of Leo, releasing via À La Carte Records on August 12th, 2022. Once again, the band's musical dexterity based on new wave, darkwave, post punk, and dreampop sounds is put into practical use, delivering something commendable and eloquent.

Asylum was written and produced by Ryan Santos Phillips, the band's songwriter and producer since their bedroom origins, and it represents new musical ground for Spirits of Leo, taking on a more driving post punk approach.

Phillips comments on the new song: “Asylum for me addresses obsessions, compulsions and intrusive thoughts, things I’ve struggled to keep at bay since I was very young. It’s very much about finding safety in a place where your inner demons oppress and control you, and finding shelter from relentless ruminations.
