Spanish-born UK-based singer-songwriter Leire continues her evolution with another breathtaking song. Titled “Waterfall”, it combines evocative lyrics and powerful voice with a progressive pop production.
Leire was raised in an environment where country music prevailed and these influences have seeped into her songwriting and sound. “Waterfall” arrives next to a gripping visual directed by Ane Rojo and Adri Nogales.
Talking about the song, the up-and-coming artist explained, “I got the inspiration of this song from the Black Lives Matter movement, but later I realised that this song really refers to any kind of social inequality. Sexual orientation, genre, race… It describes a process of fighting against the system and finally feeling free. With the word ‘waterfall’ I refer to freedom, like the water falls free, like opening your arms and flying, like being part of the Earth. It’s also a criticism to all the people that think they understand but they don’t, people that don’t understand white privilege, people that don’t support feminism, people that don’t accept the LGBTQ collective.”
