Leeroy Stagger Shares New Single ‘Does Anybody Live Here?’

Canadian singer-songwriter Leeroy Stagger has just unveiled his brand new single Does Anybody Live Here?, the second single to be taken from his upcoming album, Dystopian Weekends, set to arrive on October 1st via Tonic Records.

I am a fan of Leeroy Stagger's distinctive raspy tone which is packed with raw emotion, beautifully connecting the listeners to his storytelling. Does Anybody Live Here? is a relatable song that explores the pain of a broken heart and the loneliness and feelings of isolation that occur when a relationship ends. This message is wrapped around an infectious production that effortlessly blends folk, country and indie-pop elements into a memorable piece of music with warm melodies. I am particularly fond of the way the acoustic guitar riffs are nicely paired with jangly electric guitar plucks and steady percussion which creates a warm, summery atmosphere. 

Speaking about the song, Leeroy Stagger said,

It’s been ages since I’ve felt the weight of a broken heart due to a break up. Last year some close friends decided to break it off after a few years of a joined life together. As a writer, I’ve always been able to put myself into most others shoes and empathetically feel those feelings. That moment as it all goes down, if we are enlightened enough, it can go fairly smoothly. If we aren’t, it can be a real mess of tension and tears. This situation was no different from most breakups. Everybody can relate to a broken heart - the melancholy and pain of a separation. My job as a songwriter is to distill those feelings into a four-minute song.

Accompanying the release, Leeroy Stagger has shared its official, cinematic music video, directed by Ali Calladine, which you can check out below!
