Since forming in 2007, the band has had a rotating cast of players. The consistent, however, over of the last few years has been the two co-founders; vocalist Luke Top and guitarist Lewis Pesacov. As a whole, the collective has settled into a five-piece band for Leave No Trace with a sound that flashes fantastic musicianship amongst an exploratory vibe. Pescavo’s well-fashioned guitar riffs are as much the calling card of the band as is Top’s unique stretched out vocal phrasings. Funky, sun-soaked afro-pop rhythms on songs like “Wild Window” and “The Dive” make Leave No Trace irresistible.
Another beautiful thing about Leave No Trace is how well these songs spring out of the speakers. For a band as captivating on-stage as Fool’s Gold, they translate that energy seamlessly in the studio. Credit their musicianship, their adventurous nature or their melting pot of influences but Leave No Trace captures the band energized and engaged.
