Some Praise for Whites

"Leverage Models...specialize in discomfiting pop music. On their second full-length album, "Whites", they sketch out nervy vignettes of characters whose experiences are informed by the minutiae of our own unsettling world"

The New Yorker

NEW & NOTABLE: "Art-pop that turns a critical eye on the world, as accessible as it is complex."


"These songs just burst into light...one of the most vital statements released in 2018""

Dusted Magazine

Featured on NPR's New Music Friday

"Whites is phenomenally produced. Exciting...consuming and serious."

Obscure Sound

"Leverage Models “deliver the progressive future pop of now during today's tumultuous times”. “[a] genuine and earnest labor of love…that ponders how our world has arrived at the mess we're in…yet somehow amid our universal anxiety attacks, Leverage Models send us a sense of hope"

Week in Pop 

"an exceptional piece of work–musically dense, rich...and heady without being over wrought" 

Untitled Magazine

[9 out of 10] "Glorious...There are no genres that can confine these restless and curious musical souls...these songs impress with their tunefulness, ingenuity, and passion...all the while addressing potent cultural and political issues both personal and public...The music world can gain a great deal by paying close attention to this band. If they don't, well, maybe we don't deserve them."  


"A surprisingly massive 35 minutes of arch-pop and new wave-inspired dance music…with an existential slant...Striking, ready-made anthems for turbulent times, current and foreseeable."

Passion of the Weiss

Featured on Spotify's 'Fresh Finds' playlist

"Leverage Models create a hyper-pop miasma. a gloriously chaotic headrush...Leverage Models do not exist to adhere to existing pop blueprints, but to reinterpret the familiar...not for one millisecond is it anything short of absolutely thrilling"  

Born Music

"Underneath a maximalist pop exterior, there’s a fragile sensitivity that pushes Whites beyond being just a well-executed 21st century take on sophisti-pop...an overwhelming maximalist display that encompasses what may be Fields’ most serious and impassioned lyrics to date"
