In this edition of T.L.M.T’s song of the week feature The Mixed-Tape we turn our attention to Codes and their new single ‘Levitate’.
Opening with a sudden burst of electronic vibrancy, the almost manic introduction of ‘Levitate’ quickly gives way both texturally and dynamically showcasing a softer aspect to Codes distinctive sound.
Large-scale and bold in its production the group’s latest single has an energy and inventiveness to it that finds Codes incorporating indietronica and alternative-rock into their sound, resulting in a song that highlights their defined individuality as a band.
Frantic, pulsating and drenched in invention ‘Levitate’ is a track about constant melodic and rhythmical motion that maintains a very definite focus throughout.
Glistening with evolving synth textures laid upon a backbone of hard-edged alternative-rock guitar Code new single is as creative and sonically vivid as we come to expect from the band.
It is for these reasons that ‘Levitate’ by Codes is this week’s addition to The Mixed-Tape. The single itself is out now via iTunes.
