Levitation Room
In Los Angeles, where the weight and pressure of the city’s fast paced culture can make your legs feel
like pillars, emerges psychedelic quartet, Levitation Room, to break the bonds of gravity with their cosmic
wall of sound and thought provoking lyrics. “Just as their name suggests, Levitation Room’s music instills
the listeners ears with a light feeling of floating. The dreamy guitar and Lo-Fi projections of psychedelic
rock and garage are reminiscent of a deep 1960’s era, but still grounded in an alternative dreamgaze
flavor that permeates modern indie music today.” - OC Weekly. Their decidedly hallucinogenic songs
whisper and hum the same gentle refrain of their summer of love influences, conjuring up the cognitive
imagery of sunny days at the park, spent with friends in a euphoric haze along with lyrical and sonic
meditations on life, love, society and self-awareness.
 
In tradition, and much like the bands and musical troubadours that inspired them, Levitation Room started
out with late night jam sessions in a dimly lit garage between fellow musicians and long time friends,
Julian Porte and Gabriel Fernandez. Julian, a dedicated street musician who felt he needed a broader
platform, found chemistry with Gabriel, who he knew as a guitar player in various teenage punk and
garage bands around town. Coming together in 2012, they bonded over a shared love of British Invasion
groups (The Beatles, The Kinks, The Rolling Stones) and 1960’s psychedelic outfits like The Grateful
Dead, Electric Prunes, The Pretty Things and began drafting their earliest tunes. It wasn’t until the late
summer of 2012, that the band came to fruition when they found a rhythm section in two individuals with
almost identical names; drummer, Johnathan Martin, and bassist, Jonathathan Martin. The four began
writing songs, playing gigs and recording music out of a quaint studio in East LA.
 
After the release of their self recorded demo “Levitation Room Vol. 1”, they quickly began gaining
momentum and performing at local music venues throughout Southern California. 2015 saw the release
of their first official debut EP “Minds Of Our Own” released on Burger Records. Later in the spring of
2016, they released their first full length album, “Ethos”, with the help of their friend and new keyboardist,
Glenn Brigman, who recorded and helped produce the record. Since 2014, Levitation Room has
participated in various shows, tours and music festivals across the US and Europe and continues to see
the growth in listeners and followers on YouTube, Soundcloud and Spotify (with nearly 2 million plays on
their song “Friends”). With the promise of a potentially bright future, Levitation Room has begun to mix
and finalize their second album that they hope will display their process of maturity in sound and song-
writing, exploring new territories of influence in music and instrumentation, combining folk, jazz, raga,
soul, pop and of course… psychelia. Stay tuned!
