Ronnie Levin – Dreidel (2020)

Combining the sounds of Cat Stevens, Shawn Mendes and Troye Sivan, Ronnie Levin is a pop artist for the 21st century. Based in Tel Aviv, but originally hailing from Uruguay, Levin has an engaging sound influenced by personal experiences and the significance of life as a whole. To date, Levin has one single in his discography – the debut EP set for 2021; however, it has already earned features from several radio stations and independent blogs like Unheard Gems, For The Love of Bands and Music For The Misfits. Here we’re taking you on a musical journey in Levin’s world with a review of the single ‘Dreidel’.

Inspired by his life as a homosexual male in the Middle East, ‘Dreidel’ is a collision of culture and religion in a pretty package. Touching on elements of personal identity, romance, despair and isolation, Levin exposes the vulnerability of the human spirit. Fragile and delicate, but with a degree of boldness, ‘Dreidel’ is both soothing and empowering.

Melding heartfelt lyricism with childlike vocals, Levin’s music is highly emotive and touches one soul. Simplistic guitars and synths create a swirl of sound with a hazy ambience, yet there is a strong clarity in ‘Dreidel’s powerful message. What I adore is the forcefulness of crescendo with a superb guitar solo bringing home the significance and poignancy of the track.

Overall, I just love the single and can see it sitting alongside iconic modern pop acts like Justin Bieber and Shawn Mendes.
