Jersey Pop-Rock Band Levy & The Oaks Drop Music Video For "Obsessive Love"
Asbury Park pop-rockers Levy & The Oaks are gearing up to release their upcoming EP, Sound of the City, this August. Lucky for us, they're not leaving us begging. Yesterday, the indie trio dropped "Obsessive Love," their brand new single accompanied by a seriously well-executed music video.
"Obsessive Love" is a pop-rock romp opening with frontman Levy Okun's radio-ready vocals belting out a plea for the hopeless romantics: that love isn't all "peace and doves," but "a little Hell in this heaven above." High-powered percussion and twangy lead guitar (which crushes it with a killer solo right before the sweet suspended bridge) contribute to the track's addictive, anthemic frenzy.
Mirroring the fun and fever of the song is its music video accompaniment, directed by Jersey-based production company, Mango Visuals. Immediately, the cameras pan over stealthily taken photographs of the band members and, uh, disturbing love notes, inviting us into the mania of infatuation. We watch as a twisted love unfurls at a neon house party where the band jams out with unrivaled energy. Overall, "Obsessive Love" is hypnotizing, blending Levy & The Oaks' supreme instrumental talent with singalong urgency and splashes of harmony.
