Mr. Moonlee presents debut album 'Čuka bije pumpa' by slovenian indie / post-punk trio Lelee, which was released on June 18th 2021 by Moonlee Records and Ill in the Head Records in CD and digital format. Vinyl version of the album will be released in autumn.
Lelee's debut album ‘Čuka bije pumpa’ brings forth prominent male-female harmonies à la Yo La Tengo that stay ingrained in your memory for a long time. In their songs, you can catch references to the pioneering unpolished sound of veterans, such as Dinosaur Jr. and The Pixies, contemporary indie punk ambassadors like Sweeping Promises and Uranium Club, easy-going jangle pop and Yugoslav new wave. Despite age differences between band members they share a sincere fondness for sounds from recent indie history, which they shape into a contemporary expression for the modern listener. Lelee’s music is a kind of imaginary Adriatic indie rock that is emotive, sincere and straightforward, tailored for alternative as well as mainstream audiences looking for fresh music. And despite its slightly retro character, Lelee's debut ‘Čuka bije pumpa’ couldn’t have been created anywhere else and never before.
