Baybeats Unplugged: LEW

Visceral, bold and unafraid of diving deep into the feels, join LEW for an intimate set about love and loss.


Published: 4 Aug 2020

Time taken : >15mins


While this period has been a good opportunity for reconnection, LEW has also been cornered into revisiting past memories, experiencing nostalgia of his past relationships. This set is a reconciliation of these emotions. Wasted is a song about gratitude, but almost to the extent of feeling unworthy of the last relationship, acknowledging that his ex-partner had given LEW more than LEW gave him. Matter of Fact is the understanding that they chose to get into a relationship that they knew wouldn’t last. Do they then deserve to feel so deeply pained by the heartbreak? Robots is a reflection on the pressures we all feel as adults, to avoid pursuing the directions of our inner compass, and instead, follow what other people perceive as ”essential”. Premieres 23 Aug 2020, Sun, 8pm.
