New Music: Leigh West – ‘Hello Estella’

A classically trained pianist, Leigh West now creates tense and swirling electronic music tinged with pop melodies. ‘Hello Estella’ is a perfect examplar. Soaring vocals are seamlessly merged with jagged synths and a minimal dark pop sound. Inspired by Charles Dickens and ‘Great Expectations’, the song has a suitably ominous tone, reflecting the themes of advancement, wealth, and class that are imbued in the classic novel.
