With an indie rock landscape dominated by 90s grunge throwbacks, hardcore punk and scrappy garage bands, I Know Leopard are something of an anomaly.

The Charm - I'm in Love     Pop, Rock, Easy Listening, Britpop 24/08/2018
The Charm is reminiscent of classic Aussie 80's indie-pop. Think of a North Queensland sunset and sea-breeze with a splash of inner-city bustle, and add a pinch of melancholy.
We follow the stages of a young man’s wonder as he discovers he is falling in love for the first time. The initial feelings of self-awareness and shyness ultimately give way to unashamed joy and elation. The upbeat tempo and instruments build to the final crescendo as he shares his joy to the world.
