It’s hard for an artist to embrace a vintage look without coming across as slightly cliché, but Leon Bridges, a 25-year-old crooner from Texas, is making me swoon for real. His late 50s Sam Cooke style and taste for diners and barber shops doesn’t feel forced. It’s smooooooth.
Bridges released the video for his song “Coming Home” in March and it’s just as cool as his Instagram account, which is also all in black and white. What do you think? Are you swooning too, or does it feel inauthentic?
