Pop Levi Wants to "Dance For You"

WRITTEN BY
SPIN Staff

Former SPIN.com Artists of the Day Pop Levi is desperate for a pick me up, and he's searching for his next fix via the dance floor. In the video for "Pick-Me-Up Uppercut," the Liverpudlian pop weirdo, who's fresh off the road from touring the U.S. with Swedish garage rockers Mando Diao, blends Kinks-y psychedelia and T. Rex-like glam appeal with snappy drum beats, razor-edged guitar riffs and twisty bass lines. And it's Levi's saucy high-pitched vocals that lead this electro rock romp, while Levi (complete with a stylish bowl cut) and his band immerse themselves in classic 1970s club lighting. Ambience goes a long way, doesn't it. Pop Levi's latest album, The Return to Form Black Magick Party, is partying now on the Ninja Tune imprint, Counter Records.
