Saxophonist Steve Davit of Marian Hill has released his latest single, “Philly Sophia,” just the third track in his solo catalogue. Absent of lyrics, Davit is still able to depict a story here. “The title is a play on words with the Greek origins of Philosophy – Philo Sophia, which means “Lover of Wisdom”. But it could also be about a girl named Sophia who’s from Philly,” describes Davit. One great double entendre, we’ll leave this one up to your own interpretation.

Mixing various elements of Electro swing with a percussion arrangement likely to be found on a Trap or Hip-Hop track, Davit crafts a soulful swinger clocking in just under three minutes. The song’s sax-layered buildup swells like a wave before crashing down all at once with tidal-like force. Bouncy, yet lounge-like, this track is a heavy-hitting, feel-good, windows-down tune – stream it below via SoundCloud and be sure to crank it.

Bonus Track: Check out Davit’s Instagram for a killer arrangement of the Eagles Fight Song if you’re still riding the high of the team’s Super Bowl victory.
