OTW Exclusive: Behind the Scenes with Leland

Earlier this month, we found ourselves obsessing over a new music video featuring a really cute L.A. couple going H.A.M. on their first date. (You might know John Aprea, the actor who plays one half of this fictional couple, from his role as Young Tessio in The Godfather II.) 

“Aware,” the synth-kissed pop tune featured in said video, comes from L.A. singer-songwriter Leland, whose R&B-inflected soulpop can be heard over on SoundCloud and an upcoming EP next year. In the meantime, he has shared the behind the scenes footage of the making of the video for “Aware,” which serves to prove that any trip to Rite-Aid can be life-altering. Watch it above, and see the final cut as well.
