Hear Listenbee’s debut single!

People have been waiting to hear back from Lokal Legend for months. The NYC-based label that spurred the breakout success of Kiesza and her smash single “Hideaway” returns nearly a year later with a dazzling debut from Listenbee. Rami Ufani, label founder and producer for Kiesza, shares a few words on the track: “From the moment I heard ‘Save Me’, I knew that the Listenbee project was the perfect follow up to the Kiesza release. Listenbee breaks down barriers in the electronic world, while maintaining a strong sense of artistry, musical integrity and songwriting acumen. Listenbee’s aesthetic simply aligned perfectly with my vision for the Lokal Legend brand.”

“Save Me”, co-written with RAS, takes shape as a juicy folk house hybrid with catchy guitar plucks and steady percussion. A warm vocal topline takes center stage, its soothing melody carrying momentum toward the hook. The track boasts impressively diverse instrumentation, featuring several string arrangements, tamborines, and more. In short, “Save Me” is an undeniable hit, and everyone should have their eye on Listenbee moving forward.
