Who is it?
Berlin-based three-piece LEVENT consists of Maryna Russo (Bass), Heike Rädeker (Bass V1, Vocals) and Frankie Neumeier (drums). Yes, you read that correctly, there’s no traditional guitarist involved but that doesn’t stop this talented trio from the city’s hyped Neukölln district from delivering finest garage guitar rock material.
Why should you listen to it?
Lisa is a first single off the band’s self-titled debut album and it unfolds its mighty beauty right from the start. It’s a tight melange of post punk, krautrock and raw power with pop appeal. And it’s incredibly tight in its hypnotic presence. Not bad for a band that only started playing and performing together in the summer of 2015.
The album LeVent arrives on June 30 via ‘A Recordings’ and was recorded with the help of Anton Newcombe from BRIAN JONESTOWN MASSACRE at his Cobra Studio in Berlin. Lovers of that sort of sound should mark the date in their calender.
