Lewisburg “Wasted/Clear the Air” – Listen

We normally only post one tune in our tracks section but this double A-side is such a belter it feels unusually cruel to post one and not the other, kind of like favouring one of your children. Lewisburg are a band from North London born out of the solo project of singer-songwriter Ali Robertson. Described as dark-country they are influenced by acts such as Phosphorescent, Eels and The Deep Dark Woods, crafting mellifluous, nostalgic songs with occasional widescreen sensibilities. Roberston says: “Wasted feels so bittersweet to me. Bitter in that it draws from the sadness of nostalgia, but also is about finding the courage to walk your own path, no matter your doubts. Clear The Air is about how things are a bit screwed, it’s basically saying we gotta get out of this mess of a society we’ve created for ourselves.”
