Originally from Indiana but now based in Miracle Mile, Bryce Fox is a songwriter-cum-popster due to the release of his stellar breakout single “Burn Fast.” Produced by Frequency, the song opens on smooth synths and a sharp vox of soul but soon builds into to a blast of epic alt-pop via thunderous drums and an enrapturing choir.
“I’d rather burn fast than let it burn slow.”
Joni Payne returns with new a soothing single called “Contemporary Love.” Produced by Mike Derenzo, the chill song is a beautiful blend of neo-R&B and trip-pop via gentle keys, deep beats, and a very sultry vox of soul.
“You’re the best escape from the things that I want.”
Joni Payne is a modern chanteuse based in Miracle Mile who recently brought her sultry, jazz-influenced vox to producer duncan XL. The result is “Must Have” –a neo-R&B track (leaked off her forthcoming LP) which floats on trip-pop percussion, smooth synths, trickling keys, and edgy effects.
“I should have known that we could never be apart.”
Leitbur isn’t a throwback to classic new wave, they’re a bona fide reincarnation.

But for now, here’s the very relatable “Strange in L.A.”:
“I can’t shake the unusual things I’ve seen.”
