I Know Leopard is an eclectic blend of heady, dream pop textures with that of a more brooding and at times melancholic aesthetic.
Their debut EP Illumina, was one of the most highly anticipated releases of 2014 with its first two singles, 'She' and 'Hold this Tight', swiftly gathering glowing comparisons to the likes of Beach House and Grizzly Bear and gaining international adoration.
Their third single, 'Daisy Eyes' showed a more layered, complex offering, receiving solid national airplay on triple j and Double J as well as community radio support and nods of approval from the discerning ears of bloggers and journalists worldwide.
Following the release of Illumina, I Know Leopard wasted no time and jumped back into the studio, unleashing 'Perfect Picture', the first taste of the band’s sophomore EP which was immediately added to full rotation on triple j. To cap off an already great year, they were named the sixth most played artist on triple j Unearthed radio for 2014 and won the opening slot at this year's Laneway Festival in Sydney through triple j's Unearthed competition.
There has been no slowing of momentum into 2015 as they recently performed a blissful interpretation of TLC’s 90’s R&B hit, Waterfalls for triple j’s Like a Version, which met an overwhelmingly positive reception and very quickly clocked up over 180,000 views. Additionally, they have just released the new single, Close My Eyes, which has also been added to triple j’s rotation list.The rest of the year will see the band tour nationally with Last Dinosaurs as well as Gang of Youths and release EP number two.
I Know Leopard continue to establish themselves as one of Australia's most unique and exciting new indie-pop outfits.
