LEVV

“Sincerity and sugar rush.” That’s how Nashville, TN-based singer-songwriter Audrey Assad describes Strange Fire, the debut release from her brand new electro-pop duo LEVV. Striking a balance between deeply heartfelt lyrics and dynamic synth-based music, Assad and fellow band member Seth Jones are using LEVV to craft electrifying pop music that forgoes the tried-and-true “style over substance” approach to address both elements equally. Birthed amidst a trying touring season of artistic and financial frustration, LEVV was partially inspired by – and subsequently named after – Russian novelist Leo Tolstoy (in Russian, the name “Leo” is Lev), after Assad read Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina and deeply studied the author’s life and his dedication to his work.
