New Release Section: Lulu Lewis, “Gun”

VIA PRESS RELEASE | Based in Harlem in NYC, Lulu Lewis is the music and video project of Dylan Hundley (vocals) and Pablo Martin (guitar). Amongst numerous singles, remixes and EPs, their debut full-length Genuine Psychic emerged in 2019 and they’ve scheduled its follow-up Dyscopia for release in the fall. But today, they are offering a tasty non-LP teaser, infusing John Cale’s “Gun” with an electronic-pop/ New Wave edge, their version at once playful and serious while keeping a loose handle on the structural flair of the original. It’s worthiness can be soaked up below.

Far from novices in the fine art of song interpretation, it was last year for Valentine’s Day that Lulu Lewis released “The Love Song EP,” a thematic three-song digital effort consisting of three sharp cover tunes, Roxy Music’s “In Every Dream Home a Heartache,” John Cale’s “Helen of Troy,” and Funkadelic’s “I’ll Bet You.”

Today, by taking a second drink from the replenishing well that is Cale’s 1970s solo work, Lulu Lewis maintain their interpretive skills by playing to their strengths, specifically breathy new wavy chanteuse vocals gliding atop an invigorating bedrock of electronic elements and traditional acoustic instrumentation. Hundley’s in fine form throughout as Martin soloing on guitar delivers “Gun” a late highlight.

Along with exploring the synth-pop side of the new wave landscape, Lulu Lewis integrates aspects of ’80s R&B and even electro-funk into their equation, elements further explored on Dyscopia and especially on the upcoming remix of the album’s title track by DJ Rhettmatic (of the Beat Junkies) and Pablo Martin. Fans of the duo’s influences and what they do with them should stay tuned for both. But today, here’s “Gun,” another solid cover tune from Lulu Lewis…

Lulu Lewis play NYC’s Mercury Lounge on March 19th.
