EXCLUSIVE UK SINGLE RELEASE – ‘SHADOW’
DEBUT EP ‘FEAR NO EVIL’ – 26TH MAY 2015
‘Shadow’ is the debut single EP from American singer-songwriter LEV, who has already experienced an explosive introduction in the US this year. Following the announcement of her performance at SXSW this March, LEV has quickly been confirmed as this year’s most exciting new artist.
Hailing from Dallas Texas, the single is taken from the ‘Fear No Evil’ EP that merges the spirit of Fleetwood Mac with 80’s electro pop. The result is an exciting, yet fresh new sound full of sensuous grooves, seamlessly integrated with synth beats.
LEV, real name Peyton Holly, grew up listening to 80’s synth pop and credits Michael Jackson and The Verve as being one of her biggest inspirations. Hints of Jacksons earlier works can be detected on standout tracks ‘Shadow’ and ‘Try’, yet carefully crafted with modern references too. The upcoming single ‘Never Let You Go’ will be the second single from the EP, which also shows the darker and alternative direction that LEV takes her music.
The debut EP was produced by Eric Neal and recorded at Sundquist Studios, before being mixed by Dave Castell (The Toadies, Bowling For Soup, Blue October). The colourful pop songs, whose lyrics reveal empowerment and change, are enhanced by the purity of LEV’s vocals. The five track EP above all is characterized by passion and spirit and it is clear that LEV is in it for the long haul.
