Low Tide Levee have released their new 60’s inspired pop rock single “Dang Diggy,” out now.
Low Tide Levee are former marine biologist now turned singer-songwriter Amy Brookes, her husband Sasha Ames on bass, and guitarist Dustin Neuman. Amy has written all of their songs on their debut album, as well as singing all of the vocals and harmonies, and playing drums, percussion and keyboard.
“Dang Diggy” has a playful and whimsical feel. It’s a fun, sing-along romp featuring a springy melody that climbs up a key each verse until reaching its height, beckoning the listener to join in the reveling in the delight, joy, and infinite pleasure offered by being alive. The song’s hallucinatory charms come to life via its surrealistic and silly Claymation video.
“I realized that this incredible mask we found for our music studio (the “Funk Palace”) *was* Dang Diggy, and that Dang Diggy was absolutely this non-gendered deity that hung about in the sky throwing down pies to whomever might be fortunate enough to receive them,” says Amy. “These days in band practice, we use Dang Diggy both as a great warm-up, and as a sort of casting of the circle for our ritual of music creation, offering homage to Dang Diggy as it hangs out above my drum throne on the wall. After this musical ritual, I can’t help but laugh, every time.”
“Dang Diggy” has a more light-hearted feel to it than their previous single release, and came to Amy during a creative writing session at the local tea house where she frequently goes.
Low Tide Levee’s eclectic mix of psychedelic rock, funk and groove is the perfect backdrop for lead singer Amy´s creative force. The band’s influences range from their favorite Led Zeppelin, to Parliament Funkadelic and they are even inspired by impressionist composer Claude Debussy.
