Lewsberg + Toto Boroto

Lewsberg embodies the clandestine spirit of Rotterdam like few bands do these days. No frills, no embellishments, just stoic observation without getting lost in emotions. With a brittle, emaciated guitar sound á la The Velvet Underground, Galaxie 500 and Television, Lewsberg does not paint the world any better than it is. Strangely enough, it is precisely this that makes the band's pointed indie rock so beautiful: the quartet sucks the space into a vacuum of discomfort and thereby shines light on the beauty of reality.

Yet there is also a gentle side to Lewsberg's music and lyrics. On the fourth album 'Out And About', which was released on September 15, 2023, this side is more present than ever. Rudimentary post-punk and indie pop songs are deliberately kept subdued, only occasionally enhanced with a violin or organ part. In the lyrics, the penchant for existentialism and black humor is nuanced by an almost naive openness and involvement.
