The socially conscious new single is the third from debut Leire EP Me, You, This World.
Leire is an artist who has been gradually establishing herself and her sound with a slew of memorable and thought-provoking pop singles. The latest of which is ‘Waterfall’, a thoughtful and socially conscious rallying cry against social injustice and inequality, in and all of the forms and shapes that it comes in. The track is packed full of memorable and anthemic moments and packs a huge, defiant chorus that stands as the apex of this fine piece of work.
“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.” Leire has said of the track. “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.”
