LEWSBERG (NL) 

Lewsberg from Rotterdam is a four-piece art-punk group named after writer and fellow Rotterdam citizen Robert Loesberg, famous for his novel Enige Defecten from 1974 (never translated). That is the greatest source of inspiration for the band: the counterculture and big-city cynicism of the 60s and 70s. Lewsberg makes rudimentary and repetitive rock songs, full of a tough, nonchalant intensity. The English lyrics, brought with a heavy Rotterdam accent, show a tendency towards existentialism and black humour. 
‘In This House’, their sophomore will see the light of day on March 27th. Like their 2018 self-titled debut album, the record will be released by the band themselves, distributed through Cargo Record Distribution.
Lewsberg’s latest offering seeps into your consciousness in a different way to their debut, though their tendency towards existentialism and black humour is present throughout.
Harsher in sound, but more humane in spirit, the running order feels looser and less poised. In This House refuses to let the listener settle for a single moment, making it impossible to chart a course through the album's meandering ten songs.


“Rotterdam Talking Heads/Television enthusiasts jut out with a riveting chugger of blase threat and moral ambivalence.” — MOJO (UK) 


“Sometimes bleak, sometimes emotional and always compelling, Lewsberg are the only new punk band you need in your life.” — Music Week (UK)


“This is sardonic wit and detachment, delivered in a sing-speak style that reflects Big City melancholy. This is, quite simply, brilliant and unmissable.” — Clash (UK)


“Never has off-kilter, understated post-punk sounded so good. Not sentimental in the slightest, their lyrics focus on the mania of the mundane, making the everyday sound not so everyday.” — Gigwise (UK)


“Like a warm bath, these tracks slowly seep into your skin and leave you in a mood to accept just about anything as long as it’s another Lewsberg track. It’s impossible not to get sucked into their vibe.” — Louder Than War (UK)


“The laid back, soft-spoken Non-Fiction Writer and the more rocking Terrible are warm, bare-bones, know how to let loose a two-note or ragged solo, and just sound right.” — Brooklyn Vegan (US)
