KIRAN LEONARD SINGLE ON SPIN
“On “Secret Police,” the Manchester-born songsmith channels the totemic singer-songwriters that came before him — Rufus Wainwright III, Jeff Buckley, Leonard Cohen — with a voice that trembles as if it’s about to rupture from the weight of his tortured artistry. The song is gorgeously arranged, as well: Starting off with a simple piano figure, Leonard gradually drops in light snares and violins until he builds to an ear-splintering instrumental cacophony worthy of ELO.” –SPIN
