LEAN reveal lavish new single "On the Fence," play the Bootleg on 5/24

LEAN keep their emotions steady on "On the Fence." The indie pop duo, composed of Stephen Johnson and Kyle McCammon, share a common musical bond that allows them to morph into different versions of themselves. And "On the Fence" benefits from that symbiotic relationship - you hear a natural confluence of sounds, especially in how it bears out a dusty, chopped-up hip-hop beat that keeps a constant tempo as it lays out a gossamer guitar lead. The achingly heartfelt chorus does have an all-embracing vision, even at its most hushed, a testament to how their nuanced musicianship gives form and contrast to their anthemic tendencies. 

"On the Fence" is the latest single off of LEAN's forthcoming debut LP, Years, which comes out on May 25 via Killphonic. The duo is celebrating the release with a hometown show at the Bootleg on May 24. Juan Rodríguez
