Up-and-coming New Zealand singer and songwriter Lévyne has released her new single ‘Misconceptions’ on Friday. It’s a self-empowerment anthem, with a warm summery vibe.

Lévyne is Auckland musician Sophie Bialostocki. She’s a classical pianist turned producer who’s been releasing music since 2018.

In between lockdowns in Auckland, Lévyne has still managed to play shows, supporting the likes of Daffodils and Foley. She’s set to play NZ’s biggest New Year’s Eve festival Rhythm & Vines this December.

Earlier this year she released her debut EP, Being Low, which includes the songs ‘Look At Me’, ‘Pause’ and ‘If You Want’.

Her new track ‘Misconceptions’ includes nostalgic synths and a strong, percussive drum beat, seamlessly blending 80s elements, which a fresh pop energy. The track was produced by ølympus, aka Daniel Martin, with Rory Noble.

The song is about the two sides of a relationship break-up: “It serves as a realisation that it’s not worth spending your time stressing about people that don’t want to understand your perspective,” Lévyne says.

“It was quite a liberating song to write - to draw a bit of a line in the sand and express that enough was enough!”

The song’s video is was made by Oscar Keys who’s made a number of vids for Wellington-based artist Solomon Crook.

‘Misconceptions’ is supported by NZ on Air.
