Pete Lehar – “Off the Table”

pete lehar

“Off the Table” is a shimmering piece of jangle-pop from Boston-based Pete Lehar. Bright guitar strutting and synth flourishes accompany Lehar’s warbled voice, leading into the multi-layered vocal chorus around 01:20, when Lehar uses sleek vocal production and a soaring lead to solidify the memorable factor in this bright piece of hook-y jangle-pop songwriting. An excellent melodic transition arrives just before the two-minute mark, showing Lehar’s impressive capabilities in this melodically involved hybrid of sophisti-pop and jangle-pop. A highly impressive effort, “Off the Table” puts Lehar firmly on my radar.
