Lewis Ciavarella - Like It Like That - Stereo Stickman

Lewis Ciavarella Like It Like That


An exultant downpour of synths introduce an otherwise slick and stylish take on Afrobeat, with the smooth melodies and unavoidably catchy hook of Like it Like That.

Melbourne songwriter and artist Lewis Ciavarella captures a moment in time with this release, the intimacy and romance of the topic perfectly well-encapsulated by the groove, production, vocal softness, and lyrical simplicity.

Inspired by the likes of Rüfüs Du Sol, Hayden James and Anderson Paak, Lewis Ciavarella presents with a certain humility and confidence united – a style unconfined by genre but instead focused on the mood and intentions of the song. As such, Like It Like That feels like a fresh twist on the sultry, seductive RnB format of a simpler time, bringing together the classic rhythm of Afrobeat with dashes of cultural variation like Spanish guitar, heavy bass, and the subtle unity of rap and melody during the verses; not to mention this dreamy choir of additional vocals in the distance.

The style and songwriting combined shine light on the evolution of the mainstream landscape, the rise of Afrobeat and its popularity at present celebrated yet also gifted a clear sense of identity and variety within the Lewis Ciavarella approach.

It’s an easy to vibe to track, with an undeniable ear-worm at its core – something that will no doubt get listeners replaying this one indefinitely as the colder months close in.
