REPUTANTE- Lock me up
The foreign- sounding vocals of New Yorks James Levy are also pretty cool as his voice gets deeper and deeper, telling a story of heartbreak over some uber-synth and sweetly sad backing harmonies. How can you justify hurting the one you love? Levy croons, effortlessly cool in the vein of Joy Division as one comparison (though I never liked them much). A recording collaboration between James Levy and Tim Wheeler of Ash, and a band with Levy, Jimmy Giannopoulis, Jon Wiley, Pete Moses and Emiliano Ortiz, Reputante are signed to Cult Records, helmed by Julian Casablancas. Twit twoo indeed. This sounds quite a lot like him too. No bad thing if you ask me.
