You need to listen to Sean Leon’s new Life Goes On Without You playlist
Toronto, ON – At the end of June, Toronto artist Sean Leon released a surprise four-track playlist titled Life Goes On Without You.
“Tony Flamingo” is a bouncy, braggadocios summer jam produced by Jandre Amos. It’s a track all about being “top tier” and it’s rooted in this very unexpected guitar melody. “Sidelines” – on the other hand – is an anthem for all the side girls out there getting played, and all the guys who are playing girls on the side: “Groupies in the West End/ F**k ’em and they best friends/ Why my main bitch play detective?/ But I’m stealth/ She can’t detect it!”
He also shouts out Justin Trudeau on the intro of that one, and has a line about Donald Trump trying to steal his trap. And the best part is that the track was produced by Edeez and Eestbound, because I’ve been waiting on some co-production from those two for a minute. Mostly because I confuse the two of them because their styles are so similar. I hear Edeez on the beat and I think it’s Eestbound. And then I hear Eestbound on the beat and think it’s Edeez.
Life Goes On Without You appears to be the sequel and follow-up to Sean’s short film release Life When You’re The Movie. The two titles both have that “life” reference thrown in there, but they’re on polar opposite ends of the spectrum.
The title “Life When You’re The Movie” is a lot more self-focused and self-centred… you’re the movie and you’re the spotlight focus of everyone. But the title “Life Goes On Without You” has a more humbled connotation… it’s in reference to the fact that no matter who you are or what you’ve done, life will always go on – with or without you.
