Jersey Rock Band of the Week: Levy & The Oaks
Levy & The Oaks’ “Sound Of The City” EP release show rocked the all new Asbury Lanes on 8/3. The band put on a killer performance that night, making the case that the only thing better than listening their well-crafted music, is watching them evolve.
The hard-working Asbury Park Folk Americana outfit pushed their sound in a more accessible direction for their latest EP “Sound Of The City.” While the release takes Levy & The Oaks down a new Pop path, the band’s sound retains the 3-part harmony that has made them a stand-out act on the Asbury Park music scene. “Sound Of The City” is a great addition to Levy & The Oaks’ catalog. Featuring catchy tunes like the radio-friendly single “Obsessive Love,” and the fun ode to their home turf “Another Night Out In Asbury,” it has all the qualities necessary to provide new fans with a great introduction to the band, while giving the fan base something fresh to latch onto.
“Sound Of The City” is available now on iTunes. Physical copies of the new release can be picked up at any live show.
