NEW TRACK “MALT LIQUOR” PREMIERED ON VICE’S NOISEY HERE
Rockaway Beach-based band Lewis Del Mar’s debut EP is available now on iTunes, Spotify and Apple Music. A limited edition vinyl version will also be available on 1.29 and can be preordered HERE. The four track EP includes single “Loud(y)” and new track “Malt Liquor,” which premiered on Vice’s Noisey. See full track list below.
The band’s debut comes fresh off the heels of the official release of their first single “Loud(y).” Declared “a clattering, profane, mixed media anthem” by The New York Times, “Loud(y)” reached #1 on Hype Machine, #3 on the Spotify Viral 50 chart, was recently hailed as one of iTunes/Apple Music’s “Best Alternative Songs of 2015” and made SIRIUSXM Alt Nation’s “Songs To Know For 2016” list. Praised by KCRW as “one of the best tunes to come out [in 2015],” NME also noted that with “Loud(y)” “the pair have come up with the recipe for an underground hit.” Additionally, the track received praise from Indie Shuffle, who declared, “there’s a certain raw emotion and aggression to [Indie Rock], and I think no track in 2015 better embodied that than Lewis Del Mar’s ‘Loud(y).’”
Lewis Del Mar played their first ever shows at New York’s Mercury Lounge and Rough Trade late last year to sold out crowds, resulting in high praise for their live performance. The band also played two packed shows during CMJ 2015 at Webster Hall and Brooklyn Bowl, which prompted KCRW to include them in their round-up of “11 Artists that Ruled the Fest,” noting that “their live show is more than ready to be a tour de force nationwide.”
Lewis Del Mar is two lifelong friends, Danny Miller and Max Harwood, who began playing music together by 5th grade and continued to do so throughout high school. After graduation, the two moved to Brooklyn, NY before eventually relocating to Rockaway Beach, marking the beginning of Lewis Del Mar. In July of 2015, after almost two years of meticulous collaboration, Lewis Del Mar was catapulted onto the blogosphere with the independent release of their first single “Loud(y).” The reaction was instantaneous, with the track seeing support from Indie Shuffle, Pigeons & Planes, Consequence of Sound, KCRW and CMJ. The duo is currently at work on their debut album.
