Twelve months since the release of his debut single This is My Time, one of Newcastle’s most loved musicians, Komiti Levai is back with a new recording called Feels.
The single, produced by Matt McLaren at S&M Productions in Newcastle, is a synth-heavy journey with plenty of ’80s nostalgia.
Feels features a dancefloor-filling beat, a sweeping breakdown and local musician Josh Barnett on guitar. But it’s Komiti’s RnB vocal that’s really on show here, and he’s sounding better than ever.
Komiti has a long list of credits on collaborative musical projects and is no stranger to local live music lovers, but the release of this second single cements his spot as a recording artist in his own right.
“I never thought I’d be songwriting hard because over the years I never liked my original stuff. But I’ve learnt that it takes ten songs to write a good one,” Komiti said.
“I’ve been writing a lot this year, reflecting on myself and writing about what’s happening in the world, and what’s happening right now in my life.”
