Eclectic Sydney based five-piece Levingstone make indie soul music; rich with imagery, and bathed in lush harmony and groove. Influenced by jazz, future soul, RnB and progressive genres, and citing artists such as Snarky Puppy, Radiohead and Hiatus Kaiyote, the band’s sound is informed by many inspirations, but has a distinct flavour of its own.

After the release of their debut EP Modern Burials which garnered the band support from stations including Triple J/Unearthed, FBi, 2SER and Triple RRR, and blogs across the country and abroad including The Music, Flavourmag (UK), and Tone Deaf, the band embarked on an east coast tour that culminated in a sell-out hometown show, before retreating to the studio to work on their next release, scheduled for late 2017.

Levingstone has shared stages with artists such as 30/70, Tulalah, Lyre Byrdland, Glenn Lumanta, MMG and Baldwins, and has established itself as an act to watch in the Sydney soul scene. The band’s live show lineup often expands to a 9-piece including a horn section and backing vocals, taking the multi-layered songs in to full flight.

“a velvety and delectable collection of progressive soul, an irresistible treat for lovers of songs slightly more cerebral then the status quo.” — THE MUSIC

“an otherworldly sonic tapestry that combines a vocal complexity akin to Hiatus Kaiyote with an ambiance reminiscent of a lazy Saturday afternoon” — HAPPY

“Levingstone have nailed it on the head… the band fearlessly dare to be different.” – FLAVOURMAG (UK)

“Really clever, jazzed up pop.” – TRIPLE J UNEARTHED

“As they combine the soft sounds of soul, jazz, rock and R&B, this five piece band aren’t what you usually see, but they are definitely one to keep an eye on.” – SCRIPTED LACES
