Sounds of Hopscotch 2015 #10: Leverage Models

It's that time, y'all. Hopscotch time. Despite being a relative new kid on the festival block, with every year the Raleigh festivus gets bigger and harder to ignore. And I'm delighted to report that after a brief hiatus, your intrepid hostess will be venturing down I-85 to check out this year's impressive musical offerings. The only bummer is that I can't see every band the festival has to offer. These are my Hopscotch picks, imperative listening whether you're going to be in Raleigh this coming weekend or not.

While influences for the sparkling synthy dazzle of Leverage Models are obvious, there's plenty of substance to accompany the decidedly 80s style of Shannon Fields's songs. The sumptuous songs are just glitzy enough, and are sure to please any palate that misses the days of synth pop glory days gone by.
