Vocal powerhouse Komiti brings the Feels on new single

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.”

You can take a listen to Feels on Apple Music and Spotify and watch out for a forthcoming video clip shot at Uptowns on Watt Street.
