Hype has been building around Lewis Del Mar since they débuted in 2015 with the single, Loud(y), and the release of their first EP this January continued to stoke the flames of interest in the act. From the ten songs collected here on the self-titled Lewis Del Mar – all demonstrating an ear fine-tuned for a catchy groove and a good hook – it is easy to imagine Lewis Del Mar being crowd favourites on the festival scene, or providing the soundtrack to laid-back barbeques. Lewis Del Mar proves to be a fun and easy – though not especially engaging – listen, with repeat play after repeat play being racked-up without anything outstanding or offensive to enthrall the listener.
