The latest preview ‘Act Your Age’ is a slick piece of sugary dreamy pop from the critically acclaimed independent artist, LT (formerly known as Leanne Tennant), released on April 13 via LT Records.
As catchy as it is vibrant and optimistic, ‘Act Your Age’ follows the success of ‘Rollercoaster’, which gained placements on Spotify Editorial playlists, and garnered massive acclaim from media tastemakers from the UK to Australia. The single accompanies a glamorous Brendan Schoenmaker-directed music video which premieres today — starring Leanne Tennant and Jess Goodfellow alongside other supporting artists, choreographed by Jess Goodfellow, and produced by Nicole Collett.
Filmed in Brisbane City Hall, the music video sees the songstress leading a mob of dance-possessed employees, inciting rebellion and liberating them from others’ expectations. As the visuals grow, we find them rejecting conformity, thus breaking the mould and freeing themselves from the constraints and mundanities of a 9 to 5 job, and certain frameworks that dictate them to “act their age”.
Tune in now!
Multi-award-winning UK-born songstress, who’s now based in North Queensland, Australia, LT has travelled across the globe in pursuit of her goals, establishing her expansive artistry as a burgeoning independent musician, broadening her aural frontiers, and positioning herself as a trailblazer that will put her on the mainstream map in no time.
Having teamed up with two of Australia’s renowned writers, Joel Quartermain (G-Flip) and Edwin White (Vance Joy), ‘Act Your Age’ is another significant glimpse into the alternative, Indie-Pop sound LT is becoming known for. The burgeoning songstress lyrically delves into the themes of ageism and questions the societal pressures, stereotypes, and expectations that push people to fit within a certain framework — you be a certain age, look a certain way, dress and behave like a certain age — to be deemed acceptable. The single ultimately rejects the notion and constraints placed upon us by society that dictate to us what’s appropriate for each age as we grow and restrict our ability to live our life how we choose.
Musically, the radio-ready pop gem envelops her ethereal and expressive vocals adorned with lush textures with a hypnotic quality that draws us into a soothing world. With her melodic soundscapes packed with feel-good messages and an enticing hook sure to nestle into listeners’ minds, ‘Act Your Age’ is a piercing effort that will linger in your mind long after the last second of runtime ticked down.
LT is playing a string of intimate shows to celebrate her new single starting today.
