Sam Levin

First World Problems (digital single)

Review by Gary Hill

This is a brand new single from Sam Levin. It fits pretty neatly into the alternative rock school of pop rock. It's a fun number with a good vibe and groove.

This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2018  Volume 2 at

Track by Track Review
First World Problems
The opening section includes some chatter that feels impromptu. It brings a spirit of fun right at the start. The music works out from there into some cool rocking territory. The vocals bring an alternative rock meets pop kind of vibe to this. The guitar brings some interesting musical texture. There is a point later in the track where Levin says, "wait, wait, wait" before they shift it out into the next thing. The lyrics are slice of life with a real playful kind of vibe.
