Moreover, there is nothing wrong with their music. No issue can be taken with the melodies nor the general sound and, if anything, the lyrics are at the better end of the spectrum for a 21st century band. The twang of a guitar along with the tambourine give a country/folk feel which, it can be said, is easy on the ears.
However, the thing that bothers me is that nothing in their sound challenged me. It lacked “oomf”, so to speak. One could quite happily listen to them for hours. Yet, it would not grip you or grasp you. The lyrics and sound are as quickly forgotten as that face you pass in the street or that leaf you see falling from the tree during the height of autumn.
Levy & the Oaks are not a bad band and, as such, it is unfair for me to give them a bad review. Unfortunately, there is very little to set them apart from the sea of today's indie pop bands and I fear they will simply get swallowed up by the waves unless they can adapt their vocals to more memorable music.
