Sydney’s Progressive Soul band Levingstone are back with a killer new single ‘First Taste’ which is a teaser track to their upcoming EP ‘Modern Burials.’
“First Taste” is a trademark Levingstone tune – equal parts groove and melancholy, wrapped in a fusion of genres with a hypnotising melody to capture the soul.
Written on the floor of an empty room in the band’s new home, where the high ceilings “sounded like a church,” this lush sonic setting is evident in the song. With it’s sweeping guitar lines drenched in hymnal reverb, and the mantra-like repetition of the chorus.
“It’s probably the most direct love song we’ve written – that mix of vulnerability and joy that comes when you fully surrender to someone, and let them become your home,” said lead vocalist Sammii Su.
