Being the full-time superheroes that we are, we often need reminding that we don’t have to do all this on our own. As this track perfectly surmises, ‘we all need someone to lean on.’ This track is a loving tribute to all the sidekicks in our lives, the ones who make our endeavours possible, the ones who stick by us through thick and thin. Without them we are mere mortals; together, we can Save the World!
Lean On has been at the top of my playlists ever since it was released. It holds a special power to it, there’s an emotionality to it that I can’t really describe. It’s exotic and it’s sad but it’s also raw and uplifting. It does exactly what a song should do; that is, embody some way of feeling that can’t properly be done with words. It’s a timeless classic that serves as testament to the production powerhouses responsible for its creation.

About the curator - Matt Jenko
Matt Jenko is a university postgraduate and music producer with an unhealthy obsession with Rick & Morty and all things Game of Thrones. When he’s not in the studio (a rare occurrence these days), he’s fueling his passion for music either on the net or out in the real world. He likes being out in the nature (in the least strenuous capacity though, let’s be real here) and chilling with his cat, and he’s also pretty proud of his mammoth collection of books that he’s never read.
