Since 2012, Sean Leon has been taking his music very seriously and has managed to accomplish a fast rising career out of it. Gaining hundreds of thousands of views on his Soundcloud and frequently working with Wondagurl, the young Toronto artist is in the right position to make an impact in the industry. Planning to release his highly anticipated album Black Sheep Nirvana later this year, Sean releases “This Ain’t 2012” while we wait.
Produced by Wondagurl and a feature by River Tiber, “This Ain’t 2012” has a traditional Wondagurl sound, for example, the beat contains menacing 808s, a reggae sample, and fluttering high hats. However, a breakdown in the middle of the track unexpectedly descends into an angelic vocal melodies and guitar licks to create some light in the dark. Not recited at all in the song, “This Ain’t 2012” seems to be Sean’s everyday motivation to keep striving towards his goals as well as a fair warning of whats to come.
