A review of the LVL UP song “Hidden Driver.”

 

New York Indie Rockers LVL UP have dropped a new song from their upcoming album Return to Love (available September 23rd), and it's a quirky little rock song questioning the existence of God and religion. The title, Hidden Driver, alludes to the phrase, "Jesus take the wheel!" But this song ain't no country ditty about the Lord.

 

The track is delightful and quaint, beginning with the fuzziest of tinny guitar strumming and double tracked vocals. It reminds me of getting my first amp as a clueless teenager and using the shoddy overdrive button to make everything sound fuzzy and, well, overdriven. I think that adolescent feeling bodes well with the rest of the song, as the subject matter of the song centralizes around a guileless someone who isn't sure whether or not everything happens for a reason - whether or not there is a "hidden driver" controlling the events of one's life. A notion that would probably manifest in the mind of someone who grew up believing and for one reason or another, started to doubt.

 

Hidden Driver perks up in the second verse and drags the distortion out till the end. The track is really catchy and peppy and kind of adorable. I've been charmed by LVL UP and honestly cannot wait for their album.
