Australia's "I Know Leopard" return with new single 'Perfect Picture'

Following the release of their debut EP, Illumina, earlier in the year, Sydney four piece I Know Leopard have wasted no time jumping back into the studio, today unleashing Perfect Picture, the first taste of the band’s sophomore EP. The offering is trademark I Know Leopard –celestial, swimming, string-enhanced pop, a bit of synth and all of the feels.

Added straight to full rotation on Australia's national radio tastemaker network Triple J,  ‘Perfect Picture’ sees I Know Leopard keeping to their heady sonic intent but this time with a kraut-rock inspired groove.  Despite the lively tempo, the song remains meditative like its predecessors with dizzying layers of the lushest of strings and synths throughout. 

With all the right pop sensibilities for success, their debut EP featuring Hold This Tight, received instant radio support and nods of approval from the discerning ears of bloggers and journalists worldwide.The result was 140,000 Soundcloud spins, a hugely successful national tour and more than a handful of glowing reviews consolidating I Know Leopard’s reputation as king of the indie pop jungle.
