Why? Because the multifaceted, songwriter, musical jack-of-all-trades, front man, Mickey Mouse lover Levek is coming out with his debut LP in September. Wait, are you close enough? Good, because a sneak peek is even available here!
Look A Little Closer tells the tale of a young girl’s struggle with mental illness and how she overcame the odds through finding shelter and trust in family and friends. Asked about the album writing process, frontman David Levesque said the album seemed to just take off by itself from a general sound he wanted to go for, followed by a common lyrical ground.
Sonically, Levek‘s accomplished music project offers the perfect combination of tenderness in “Bridge Over Troubled Water” and funky 70s Blaxploitation attitude. On the lead single “Black Mold Grow,” soaring harmonies bleed into a soulful disco swagger, a perfect contrast to the slinky bossanova-esque “Terra Treasures.” Look A Little Closer is a pastiche of genres that live harmoniously in unison on record and in the mind of the man behind Levek.
Look A Little Closer may only be coming out this September on Lefse Records, but the hype is already starting now: Urban Outfitters picked “Black Mold Grow” to be part of its New Music Monday this week, alongside Frank Ocean, and Pitchfork just premiered the track “French Lessons.”
So, are you ready to really Look A Little Closer? You can preorder the album here. We promise you won’t be disappointed.
