I really don’t know much about Isle Of Wight, even though its one of the most popular English islands around. I only know of it due to the long-standing British music festival that occurs there every year. But I’ve come to learn that I’m in love with this singer songwriter, Swan Levitt, who hails from the island. He recently released a deeply affecting folk song named Alive from his highly anticipated debut EP, and it’s quite the intimately moving piece. Alive’s heartfelt lyrics detail an event involving a close friend, and the fast rising artist’s grainy voice seems ready to crack under the weight of his anguished emotions. The acoustic-folk ballad is beautifully heartbreaking, to say the least.  It builds slowly, swells gently, with lush strings and poignant fervency. Speaking on Alive, Swan said; “Alive is a song about loss. It’s primarily about a close friend who battled with cystic fibrosis. However, it has wider meaning. Family, friends, memories (good and bad). I think most people can relate to some kind of trauma, so ‘Alive’ should resonate with them”. Pre-order Swan Levitt’s self-titled debut EP, here.
