VIDEO PREMIERE: Looch Lewis & The Press Gangsters – Whiskey Helps The Sun Go Down

Sydney songwriter and musician Looch Lewis already has an EP and single under his belt but Whiskey Helps The Sun Go Down is the first release with his six-piece band The Press Gangsters and his first release on the local Stanley Records label.

We’re very happy to be able to premiere the video clip for the title-track single today, featuring Lewis wandering the pavements, parks, bars and stages of the Inner West of Sydney.

The song is a mid-paced and reflective, ragged country/rock song that finds new ways to explore the ‘drinking away your sorrow’ corner of songwriting. Guitars rattle and stagger from bar stools to burnt-out relationships as Lewis digs deep into the emotional well, a violin beautifully augmenting the heartache and hangover of the song.

Also on the EP are two covers – Warren Zevon’s ‘The Factory’ and The Kill Devil Hills’ ‘Angry Town’. The EP Whiskey Helps The Sun Go Down is out Friday May 26th ahead of a full album later in 2023.
