2007 - 2007
Leafes was started by the three friends Jesper Canell, Viktor Ottosson and David Eng in late 2006. Leafes first 6 track lo-fi singer/songwriter release was put out on tape by Release the Bats in Christmas time the same year and was finished just in time for Leafes first live show at Christmas day in Jönköping. A recording session started just a few days later, a session that ended up as the redstarcommunity release In the mountain's belly.
Leafes has evolved from making pop songs with a twist, that maybe can be described as alt-country, to making more experimental songs, including the kraut experience Sweet joy and the drony Pink moonlight. The red thread in Leafes music however is the joy in making music and the will to take on new paths, paths that have no obvious destination.
