New Album In Your Hands Due On Vinyl 1st April
Listen To New Single “Sweets”
Following their recently sold-out 7″ single “Six Hills” on Speedy Wunderground, Dutch four-piece Lewsberg have announced the vinyl release of their latest album, In You Hands.
Previously only available digitally after a surprise release back in October, vinyl copies of In Your Hands can now be preordered here and will be released 1st April.
Further exploring Lewsberg’s more intimate side, In Your Hands steps away from their early kraut-led punk into a quieter landscape, with violin flourishes and gently plucked guitars. Raven Sings The Blues describes, “With a winsome wander of guitar feeling out the shape of the night and a dose of somber violin over a Moe Tucker swipe on the drums, the band finds themselves pushing further into the smoke-curl cool.”
Lewsberg has recently enjoyed support from BBC 6Music’s Lauren Laverne, Gideon Coe and Don Letts, plus Clash, The Line of Best Fit, Brooklyn Vegan and more.
The album iteself, is a 9 track voyage that showcases this immersive journey from start to finish. Delicate vocal notes kick-off “Departure” against this backdrop of building intensity and a piercing note accompanying the harmonies before “The Corner” leads onto its voyage with additional instrumentation and more complex textures. Baritone vocals and a spoken word effort allow this contrast from the first track, strings join the atmosphere and glide the movement of the ensemble. Elsewhere Lewberg delivers many tracks that depend on this slower tempo to support the insightful lyrics and expressive rhythms. A powerful and alluring record in all its glory.
