LEVI and VICTOR PERRY, “Moonlight”
I will always say that if the chemistry is there and you score with your first record together, then definitely make a second! And so that’s what’s happened with German producer Levi and sweet ‘n soulful American vocalist Victor Perry, who first created the thoughtful, lilting “Sail” together last year, one of my favourite songs of 2017 which got to #3 on my personal chart. The pair return with “Moonlight”, a different kind of electro-ballad that isn’t slow-paced as regular ballads usually are. It’s got a playful, fanciful uptempo rhythm at times that seems to recall doo wop more than any other style of music, and is old school in the same vein of “Lost In Japan” by Shawn Mendes. “Moonlight” is punctuated with great melody and another stellar vocal from Victor, who is a highlight to any release. “Moonlight” isn’t a club banger but a lot of charm, rhythm, melody, and fine singing goes a long, long way (and maybe a Zedd remix is in order too 🙂 )!
