Rotterdam-based band Lewsberg are getting us ready early for their second album, which is scheduled for 2020. They've shared a new single called 'Cold Light of Day', which will see a limited cassette release as well as being available online.

'Cold Light Of Day' sounds classically psychedelic, and the spirit of The Velvet Underground is certainly deep in the DNA of this one - Arie van Vliet's voice even sounds a bit like John Cale, especially in his speak-singing, rambling delivery. Guitarist Michiel Klein says of 'Cold Light of Day', "When I wrote the music for this song, I tried to keep things simple as always,” and that restraint has served them well, with the song instantly finding the sweet spot of the simplicity-enjoyability matrix. Although a potentially heavy topic, the feeling in 'Cold Light of Day' is so light that at the end Klein even pulls out a guitar solo; "It baffles me every time, because I’ve never cared for, or in fact even hated, guitar solos,” he admits.

You can listen to 'Cold Light of Day' and its b-side 'Cold Night' on DSPs now, and order the cassette on their bandcamp. Lewsberg have these live dates coming up:

Wednesday 9th October - Sneaky Pete’s, Edinburgh
Thursday 10th October - The Hug & Pint, Glasgow
Friday 11th October - Headrow House, Leeds
Saturday 12th October - Fusion Arts, Oxford
