Matthew has made a name for himself as a engineer/producer & mastering engineer working on Bedhead, The New Year, The Gotobeds, Metz. Nots, Xetas, SuperChunk, Silkworm records and he adds own touch of magic to the tracks that now retain a little more of the live recording atmosphere and mesh together a whole much better than before.Originally made up of the 3 EP’s: Cavity Castle (2014), Nice Try (2015) and Dang (2016), plus new track, ‘ Kick The Habit’.’Bruises’, ‘Even Lana’, ‘Backyard’ and ‘Waisted’ were produced by Sam Cowen in 2015

Hailing from the heartland of America, Ohio’s Leggy is a blonde-heavy dream punk trio exploding with empowered earnestness, an undeniably catchy pop sensibility and that ever timeless grrrl in-and-out of love allure. With influences drawn from contemporary artists like Lana Del Rey & St. Vincent, as well as 90’s jammers like The Breeders and Hole, Leggy produce a unique style of music that equal parts dark pop and shimmery punk.
Leggy began after singer-guitarist Veronique Allaer took a hip-breaking tumble off a fire escape days after graduating from college. Priorities drastically rearranged, she ditched the plans for grad school and instead moved into a house with her two best friends and music lovers, Kerstin Bladh and Christopher Campbell. The three began crafting raucous yet infectious garage pop led by Bladh’s fuzzed out and slinky bass lines, fortified with Campbell’s heavy-hitting yet tight drum beats, and sweetened with Allaer’s saccharine vocals.
After releasing three eps in under two years supported by incessant touring, Leggy have gained a national following in the States and have enjoyed significant airplay from college radio and attention from blogs. Leggy have played over a dozen festivals and have toured/shared the stage with (among many others) Bully, EMA, Ex Hex, Screaming Females, Sad13, Wildhoney, The Spook School, T-Rextasy, Stef Chura, Colleen Green, Chastity Belt and Tweens.

“…lo-fi productions of infectious melodies, bubblegum punk and a taste of not giving a fuck.” – – She Shreds Magazine
” It discomfits. It unsettles. It reassures. I would have covered this for Melody Maker.” – Everett True
