Leah Mason wants her life back on “Klepto”

Date:

We were introduced to Leah Mason’s pop era in February when she released “YOUR BOYFRIEND SUCKS.” Just in time for Valentine’s Day, “YOUR BOYFRIEND SUCKS” was a playful but direct offering about the power of friendship and why you should listen to your bestie when she says “your boyfriend sucks.” Regardless of whether this friend took Leah’s advice and broke up with this boyfriend or not, the song was a catchy and inspiring anthem that also ushered in a new chapter for the former country-pop artist. Leah’s immersive storytelling skills pair nicely with this more pop-focused sound for her, and she continues to embrace this new era of her career with “Klepto.”

On “Klepto,” Leah finds that someone close in her life may be a little too close. She tells us about a dress that she bought that ended up in a friend’s closet, which seemed a little strange but not too sinister at the time. Slowly, however, Leah starts to notice that her life is now being completely replicated by this friend. Over the up-tempo beats, Leah sings, “You petty little thief” and “You’re just a carbon copy clone!” Her tone is reminiscent of Miss Taylor Swift, where there is an easy breezy and cool energy to the music and melodies but the lyrics will cut deep. In the end, she tells this friend, “I have a life, go get your own!” completely fed up with the whole situation. You can check it out below.

Telling us about the inspiration behind “Klepto,” Leah explains,

“The song is about this friend I had who I noticed started to take a lot of ‘inspiration’ from me. She would subtly ask me about where my clothes were from, and the next week she’d show up in the same thing I had been wearing. It was flattering at first, but she eventually started messing around with the people in my life, like talking to guys she knew I liked and inviting my friends to hang out without me. It was like she wanted my life. It was so frustrating because it felt like she would try to take everything I told her about. She was a goddamn klepto!”

You can listen to “Klepto” on platforms like Spotify, Apple Music, and SoundCloud.
