Lewisburg are a band from North London born out of the solo project of singer-songwriter Ali Robertson. Crafting potent tunes that drip with nostalgia, their mellifluous musings are raw and enveloping, even in their easiness. Sinuous and tactile, Clear The Air ambles along with an enchanting darkness. Wasted is a more stripped back tune, fully immersed in the dark-country vibe, making moroseness sound compelling.
The double A-Side was recorded early this year in the band’s own studio in Haringey, North London. They favour a quick, predominantly live way of recording. ‘For us this is the best way to do it. We work fast, we try to retain the human element in our recordings wherever possible.’ Lewisburg are currently putting the finishing touches to a pending EP which will be released in the autumn.
