(Beth Leighton) as LE!GHTON, has just released her second ever single, “Big Bad Wolf”, the follow up to her debut last year, “Ocean Blue”.
The slow, heavy synth track focuses on her own mental health issues and explores naivety and conflict in relationships through the setting of the classic fairy tale using the big bad wolf to good effect.
