Stray Kids are back, this time with the ruminative “Levanter.”
Fronting their Clé: Levanter EP, the final in their Clé album trilogy, the song, released on Monday (Dec. 9) continues the K-pop boy band’s exploration and expression of self that was previously featured in their prior albums throughout the I am… and Clé album series. In particular, “Levanter” puts the focus on Stray Kids’ aim to be the most earnest forms of themselves.
The sleek, melodic dance track is anthemic in its angst-driven lyrics, as the eight members of the boy band search for themselves following the end of a relationship with another person. "I wanna be myself (I don't care)/ Even if it's still strange (Just don't care)/ As soon as I broke away from you, I can see myself/ Everything, all before my eyes,” they sing in the chorus.
