Levin goes Lightly
The Levin Goes Lightly fan will inevitably think of Truman Capote’s enchanting character Holly Golightly of “Breakfast at Ti any’s”. However, when you see Levin goes lightly live, you will see a glamorous persona who is not interested in cos- tumes but magical transformation. His or her singing voice sounds surprisingly masculine, heavily undercooled and reminiscent of Post Punk rather than Glam Rock. Fad Gadget and Thomas Leer might spring to mind. But also the excessively deep disco timbre of Amanda Lear. And of course David Bowie as his classic alter ego Ziggy Stardust over and over again. Levin Goes Lightly had to take some time o after completing his studies of fashion design and it was only after a few years
of silence that he felt able to resume making music. “After my first show some people in the audience said I sound like White Noise or Suicide. I didn’t know all that!”
Levin Goes Lightly seems to fill a huge gap with his songs. But contrary to the protagonists of Glam Rock, Levin Goes Lightly is not a sweating stage hog but a tender star of shyness between staging and authenticity.
