Leche, or “milk,” is a trip hop, downtempo creepy electro project between hot model/singer Marcela Thais and musician Leandro Muñoz.

Their music is rich, dark and moody with trip hop’s signature heavy, chugging percussion and bassline. But a few tracks, including “Suspira En Mi” (“longing in me”) veer more toward showing off Thais’s capable, folky vocal chords. One of their tracks, “Council Estate,” is a trip hop remix of a track by UK alternative musician Tricky…with whom they share the record label BrownPunk. - MTV Iggy
