Leif Erikson have unveiled new track, “200 Times” The song is a labour of love born out of Leif Erikson’s hard graft, dedication, and commitment to their craft. Frontman and songwriter, Sam Johnston, considers the lyrics to be some of his most personal yet: “They hark back to when I was working as a chef, at the same time as avidly making music, and in true culinary fashion probably burning a little too much of that midnight oil… I was pretty physically and emotionally drained at times but had to really push through. That said it was a period of tremendous fun, friendship and creativity. They also have a mystical quality which I like to think has become part of my lyrical style. I was inspired by Yoko Ono’s fluxus score concept which is a really interesting artistic tool. The line “a thousand suns setting in the sky” is a nod to Yoko.”
