Misterium Whisper first appeared here on The Static Dive in November upon the release of “We Came and Went.” That song introduced us to the solo project of Italian singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Leo Irsara. An artistic free spirit, he has created his own space in Indie Rock.
With vintage instruments and a classic DIY aesthetic, Leo follows a great tradition of singer/songwriters. It’s a tradition of narrative, Lo-fi, guitar driven, brainy Folk/Rock pioneered by Lou Reed and The Velvet Underground. It’s a place where poetry meets Rock & Roll.
“December” is Misterium Whisper’s latest single and video, released December 12, 2020. The song recounts a conversation between the narrator and the month of December itself. In his own signature style, Leo colors his story with visual imagery and a casual, conversational tone. A mellow Indie-Rock groove accompanies him as he and December have their poetic and metaphysical discussion. It is a beautiful and slightly psychedelic setting.
I wrote this song in December and I wanted to create a dialogue between me and this month, as if December were a nice person I interact with, and as if I were making confessions and questions to someone who can hear and listen to me. I tried to somehow make him a kind of friend and counselor.Leon Irsara (Misterium Whisper)
