“ Is Anyone There” is a new single by Connor Leckenby, Leeds-based singer-songwriter. It’s his fourth single of the year and the first song from the upcoming EP, slated for release in 2024. “Is Anyone There” serves as a perfect follow-up to “By My Side,” “Demon,” and “Who I Want To Be,” three excellent songs released earlier this year. However, “Is Anyone There” also showcases innovations in songwriting, composing, arranging, recording, and producing. His previous works mostly leaned towards alternative and indie rock, while this single showcases his pop-punk side. Of course, you’ll notice how Leckenby included some of the finest properties of alternative, indie rock, and hard rock into “Is Anyone There,” but this track resonates with modern pop-punk sound that will immediately grab your attention. These additional sonic ingredients serve as more than necessary enhancements, accentuations, decorations, and other details that uplift “Is Anyone There” on an entirely new level, while Connor Leckenby remains loyal to the primary sonic direction.
Leckenby’s outstanding vocal performance plays a significant role, as it serves as a centerpiece of this sonic equation. His perfect balance between low, mid, and high notes flawlessly decorates all the instrumentations. He incorporated many impressive themes, leads, melodies, chord progressions, and riffs into “Is Anyone There,” serving as a perfect backdrop for all his vocal maneuvers. The generous servings of fuzz distortion give more than the necessary touch of rawness, abrasiveness, and aggression that most pop-punk songs lack these days. Of course, this track wouldn’t sound this good without equally complex, vividly hearable, warm-sounding basslines that provide heaviness, depth, and clarity. He also thought about rhythm section, so you’ll notice how energetic, well-accentuated beats, breaks, fills, and other percussive acrobatics offer groove and pace, but also keep the remaining instrumentations in line. Everything sounds top-notch from scratch to finish.
Connor Leckenby thoroughly planned everything while assembling his latest single. “Is Anyone There” sounds marvelous thanks to the his skillful song structure planning, which reveals many impressive vocal harmonies, sonic maneuvers, and rhythmic acrobatics along the way. This song stands out from anything delivered by the other contemporary artists and bands because Leckenby thought about even the tiniest details. He invested all his experience, knowledge, talent, brilliant ideas, and exceptional musicianship, and the effort resulted in a magnificent song you’ll gladly put on your playlist.
