Feelings of jealousy can send you into a vicious cycle of insecurity. This is brought to sonic life by Levy in her single ‘Seeing Red’. As she delves into the insecure thoughts you might get lost in, she reminds us to take them with a grain of salt. The single is a refreshingly honest tribute to the darker emotions we have and a reminder that we can all overcome them if we try.
Using some conventional pop-rock foundations, she builds on it with neo-soul grooves and expressive vocals. These melodic elements are wrapped in conversational lyrics and laid over a polished base for a single you will not want to listen to only once.
The soulful vibes hit you from the first note of ‘Seeing Red’. The instruments have a sultry soulful slide that makes you want to sway to them. The drums bring a more rock tone to the music complemented by the call of the guitar. The melody is an amazing mixture of groovy beats, soulful slides and singing guitars that come together for a soulful foundation for Levy’s vocals. The layers of the melody are all unique but come together perfectly for a textured melody that takes a gentle turn later in the single.
The textured melody forms the perfect foundation for Levy’s vocals. Her voice carries the soulfulness of the melody into the lyrics while making you want to sing along with her.

This turns into a funkier groove as the song progresses with a splash of neo-soul.
