Lewsberg from Rotterdam are a four-piece rock group named after writer and fellow Rotterdammer Robert Loesberg, famous for his dangerous1974 novel Enige Defecten. That is the greatest source of inspiration for the band: the counterculture and big-city cynicism of the 1960s and 1970s.
After releasing ‘The Downer’ EP and Non-fiction Writer single in 2017, Lewsberg released their self-titled debut full-length in April 2018. Nine rudimentary and repetitive rock songs, full of a tough, nonchalant intensity. The English lyrics, delivered with a heavy Rotterdam accent, show a tendency towards existentialism and black humour. This album will receive a worldwide re-release 25 January 2019.
