When I first received this very short single I wasn't hoping for a lot. But, as it turns out, I really enjoyed this single. Going into this I, like many people probably, had no idea who Annapurna was or what they played, but after listening to this for a few times I gained some respect for this relatively unknown band. That is not to say that this album is ground breaking at all, it isn't, but it is very well played and Annapurna has really shown some talent in creating this single.
I am a Leaf starts off with a synth and guitar intro section that decrescendos and then crescendos into a more complicated guitar riff accompanied by some drums. For such an unknown band, Annapurna has shows a lot of talent especially in the heavier parts of this song. About half way through it gets a little heavier, but then settles down for the rest of the track. Vocals on this track are non-existent until the last couple of minutes and they come through pretty clearly, offering up a pretty good sound. This single isn't too complicated or technical but it's still very interesting especially in the middle.
Overall this single is sure to bring many eyes and ears to Annapurna, and I can't wait to see what they will make of this single in the future. But for now they get 3 stars.
