Le Fleur is a Melbourne-based artist whose lyricism and narrative tackle subjects such as society, love, sexuality, and social issues through the prism of her lived experience as a queer mixed race Black woman. Le Fleur’s latest track Candy explores similar topics while heavily leaning towards disco and dance, displaying an overwhelming desire to return to the stage and command the dance floor.
The song’s bridge, which has sing-along layered harmonies and a drum rhythm that made me want to dance, was one of my favourites. The song’s shape is quite nostalgic, and it gives off some pastel-colored sensations. Furthermore, the instrumentals, particularly the percussion and synth parts, form a unique blend that distinguishes Le Fleur. The music is both catchy and modern, as well as nostalgic.
Candy by Le Fleur is an excellent addition to any dance party mix. Candy is an instant mood shift that fits nicely into Le Fleur’s catalogue, and I can’t wait to hear more from them.
