Leggy: Nice Try

May 1, 2015

Those who live by the adage that "Less is More" probably haven't been properly introduced to the album Nice Try - the second release by Cincinnati's Leggy.

Leggy is a 3-piece band consisting of Chris Campbell [drums], Kerstin Bladh [bass] and Véronique Allaer [guitar], whose sound is the musical equivalent of peach schnapps - equally sweet and dangerous.
