Psychedelic rock is a genre making its way back into the forefront. Carrying on California’s long history with psych rock, while adding a distinctly modern flare, Levitation Room resides in a musical pocket of their own. Back with their first new music in three years, Scene For An Exit undulates in rhythm and intensity, mirroring the highs and lows of a relationship coming to an end. A chain of events causes a heart-breaker to cut his hair off and indulge into his vices. Lead singer Julian Porte said:
’Scene for an Exit’ was one of the first songs we wrote on this forthcoming album. It’s a song that came naturally to us while we were jamming in our studio one day, so nothing about it was preconceived. I was going through a breakup at the time, so the lyrics reflect the end of a relationship and the feeling of rejection after the attempt to reconcile, hence the chorus line: ‘I don’t want you around.
Funk-driven and vastly textural audio is accompanied by an official video directed by Alfredo Lopez. Later this month, Levitation Room will be making a trip to Chicago to headline the Thalia Hall Block Party on the 26th. The following night, the band announced a bonus show at The Empty Bottle alongside Mauskovic Dance Band. Keep up with Levitation Room by following them on Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, Spotify, Apple Music, Facebook, and Bandcamp. Stream your copy of the single here and watch the official video below.
