From beginning to end, this song is a fantastic experience that has left us eager to see where Leela’s career will take her in the following months!
Switch is Australian singer/songwriter Leela Misel’s debut single, with mesmerising guitar riffs and unusual bluesy-rock vocals. Switch examines topics of racial discrimination and code switching by illuminating the darkness through story-telling and catchy tunes. After hearing the word “code flipping” on a podcast, Leela Misel wrote this song. This is lauded as a skill in the song, but it also laments the suppression of “so much of what makes me who I am, only to protect people from treating me differently because of my ethnicity or history.”
