Leslie Clio – I Couldn’t Care Less

From the moment Leslie Clio starts singing on her debut single, „Told You So,“ it’s clear that she’s captured the essence of great soul music and updated it for a new era. The ingredients she uses are timeless: a lone piano or acoustic guitar, a simple drumbeat or tambourine, a worried church organ or even all of the above woven into a wall of sound. But it’s Leslie’s self-written lyrics and take-charge singing performance that announce the arrival of a bold and refreshing new musical artist. Leslie Clio oozes the type of soul and authenticity that her forbears like Dusty Springfield or Lauryn Hill had. It’s the paradox of a woman young enough to still feel the promise and tingles of first love, but worldly-wise enough to know that men will be men and boys will be boys. Throughout her first single and the broad range of material on her first album, „Gladys“, Leslie and her producer Nikolai Potthoff have fashioned a new sounding cosmos out of an attic full of simple instruments, spare electronica and powerful emotions. There are nods to dark trip-hop and bouncy Motown beats. Many tunes are held aloft by a simple bassline, spare drums, and a blurry-eyed organ. And just as this slim woman’s shoulders bear the heavy weight of loves ups and downs, her lightweight sounding music leaves room for deep drama and emotion. Some may see a young blonde woman and decide to call Leslie’s music blue-eyed soul, but it’s not cold, manufactured or distant. Leslie Clio is as direct as a 3 a.m. come – hither stare or a slap in the face. It’s bloodshot-eyed soul.

Leslie Clio – I couldn’t care less Lyrics:
You ask me out bout your upcoming tattoo-I couldn´t care less.
You ask me if I like your new shoes-I couldn´t care less.
And everyone loves your new girlfriend, well, according to you.
But when I tell you bout this guy I met, suddenly you get upset
Monsieur would rather change the topic if it´s not all about you.

Oh shut up I couldn´t care less.
I want to kick your ass.
wearing ten-centimeter heels.
Please shut up I couldn´t care less.
Why, why, why don´t you have your own ideals?

You mention names from people I don´t know.
so that I couldn´t care less.
You saw this concert and that show- I couldn´t care less.
You´re not talking big, no, so why don´t I care a bit more?
Why d´you admire all these people not worth to care for?
I see the things a bit different: you´re a would-be, she´s a whore.

So shut up I couldn´t care less.
I want to kick your ass.
wearing ten-centimeter heels.
Please shut up I couldn´t care less.
Why, why, why don´t you have your own ideals?

And now you´re thinking why I´m writing this song then.
Well I´m just running out of ideas.

But I couldn´t care less.
Why don´t you have your own ideals.
Oh shut up I couldn´t care less.
I want to kick your ass.
wearing ten-centimeter heels.
Please shut up I couldn´t care less.
Why, why, why don´t you have your own ideals?
