Soran Leif is Searching for Love With “Glimpses of You”

by The Alchemist

Soran Leif is an artist that is currently based out of DC with his dog Bentley. By focusing on emotional resonance, Soran Leif builds musical worlds for listeners to enjoy. Being an artist that is influenced by all genres, he is a true embodiment of a post-genre era artist that fuses many styles of music into his own creative style. With help from his amazing pup, Soran Leif strives to uplift his audience moods with heartfelt pieces of art.

His newest track is called, “Glimpses of You” and it is a track that blends both LoFi Soul with a breakbeat tone. The song makes us feel at ease, and it has a very relaxing texture to it. The production has a very simple structure, but it is complemented very well with his vocals to create the end result.

When asked about the song he says,

“When creating this track, I wanted to establish the feel of someone that is searching for the love of their life. When we are in a relationship with someone, we hope that that person is our soul mate but most of the time, it’s just a glimpse into what we are searching for because things fall apart for various reasons. This track is about that search and yearning to find that special someone.”

He also runs a YouTube series for the sub Reddit Indie Music Feedback where artists take the same starting stems and make their own songs. He takes these songs and creates a musical showcase to help unknown artists gain more popularity. You can find out more about that here and also check out the track below.

Flow-bending artist aSanTIS discusses art, culture, and whether sound can solve the world’s problems in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month.
My interview with Amy Santis aka aSanTIS began in the most unexpected way. The Maryland-based flow-bending artist and lyrical storyteller came prepared to engage in conversation around questions I had posed – and she also brought one or two of her own thoughtful prompts based on her curiosities around my view of learning.

This practice of taking in her surroundings deeply through observation and inquiry has come naturally to aSanTIS ever since she was a young child. In terms of her early starts in music, she notes that she began as a discerning listener. “Just listening to music from my mom, on the radio, just being a consumer in the world of sound. But I think mainly, my mom has always loved dancing and listening to music, so that was sort of like second nature. We play music at gatherings, we play music in the car, and these songs are sort of like diaries that take us into a specific place.”
