When someone comes up to you after a concert saying, „I´m going to make you a record“ you are stoked for the moment, but you don´t reckon it will happen. Half a year later Anton Newcombe of Brian Jonestown Massacre called LeVent in to his Cobra Studio in Berlin. Teaming up with studio engineer Andrea Wright from Parr Street Studios Liverpool, the red button got pushed and it became a super pleasant experience of recording and mixing. Their self-titled debut album was released on Anton's record label "a recordings" in June 2017.
Like a drunken driver, LeVent swerves up over the curb, drives straight through the garage and total their ride somewhere out in a goat farm. Bleating at it’s most danceable, they carry listeners far away to get lost in nice nonsense, stuck in heavy forgetting, and transfixed on what was, leaving you thirsty for more.
LeVent started playing live in late 2015, shared the stage with a bunch of talents including Kadavar, The Underground Youth and Die Nerven, to name a few, and evolved into one of the most interesting acts on Berlin's underground scene. The trio with their heavy played post-punk sounding Krautrock found themselves with a fast growing enthusiastic audience. They self-released a four track demo EP on cassette in 2016, from which two tracks were played in the American TV-series 'Gotham‘. Theiy also found their way on the Radio Eins Sessions 2 vinyl sampler and 15 Years 8MM vinyl sampler of Berlins infamous 8MM Bar / 8MM Musik.
