Just Listen: LVL UP: Hidden Driver


Words: Nick Jaques

lvl-upHaving just signed to the legendary Sub Pop label, LVL UP’s  latest album, Return To Love could be the calling that you are looking for. The first single Hidden Driver is a little nugget filled with cool slacker vocals, measured fuzzy guitar licks and clattering drums that combine to produce an accessible lo-fi gem of a record. The song expertly unveils its layers whilst lyrics sing about the relationship between spirituality and creative inspiration. There are nods to Neutral Milk Hotel in their general sound but don’t let that faze you!
