Former IQ frontman Paul Menal has teamed up with Fuzzbox’s Vix Vox to create and infectious groove in the form of “They Call Her Leaf”.  The song itself has a very retro feel, in a good way, and shows that Pauls voice gets better with age. In concert with Vix, the song improves all the more. “They Call Her Leaf” is a well thought out pop anthem in the rough with soaring vocals, sonically harmonic guitars and a groove throughout that never lets up. Well done!
