Nick Leng, has shares a music video for his single, “My Mind is a Mess in the Morning.” “My Mind is a Mess in the Morning” is part of Nick’s brand new double-single featuring A-Side, “Morning / Midnight.” Both tracks — which come off his forthcoming second LP, Spirals, which drops on July 22 via SOTA Records.

Leng’s often piano-led and supported by his breathtaking vocals. When Leng describes his music, he often refers to color. The indie artist’s gift is an abstract type of synesthesia: a kaleidoscope of emotions manifested into enthralling sounds. “I like dissonance, tension,” he says, “but also, joy and beauty are so important to me.”

Nick Leng on “Mind is a Mess:”

My Mind is a Mess in the Morning’ was written while I was living in Topanga in a trailer park which, subsequently, (and arguably hilariously) became rat infested prompting a hasty departure.” – Nick Leng

When Nick Leng describes his music, he often refers to color. The indie artist’s gift is an abstract type of synesthesia: a kaleidoscope of emotions manifested into enthralling sounds. “I like dissonance, tension,” he says, “but also, joy and beauty are so important to me.” The most stunning songwriting is at once beguiling and relatable. And Leng’s second album Spirals (out July 22 via SOTA Records) is just that: the untethered sound of Nick Leng falling in love with music again.

“I feel much more in tune with myself,” says the South African born, Los Angeles-based Leng. “In the past, I’ve battled this insecurity making music.” Classically trained as a child, he’s metamorphosed into free-spirited musician who sees opportunities, not boundaries. But he’s also a natural-born perfectionist, which comes with some trappings. “I was stressed and had anxiety. But with Spirals, I reconnected with joy.” His listeners are beneficiaries of this, an artful journey entrenched in the many dualities in life.
