Levels
by Meredith

 

Hailing from music hotspot Brisbane, Australia, Meredith just dropped her second jam "Levels". The track screams Ellie Goulding, an electronic pop production behind a dreamy voice that fits the bill to a tee. Good musical aptitude with a good arrangement, catchy chorus, and a few syncopated verses halfway through; it's an easy song to dig into and with it being less than three minutes, you can't help but replay it a couple times over. Nice track.

Well, here's the final piece to his self-title EP "Unbound". The Chet Faker-esque EP is now available on iTunes. Enjoy.
