"Premiere: Celebrate Women + Individuality with LuLu Lewis’ “All Just Pretending”"

It’s International Women’s Day, and LuLu Lewis has something to say on the matter. The group’s latest single serves as commentary on womanhood and individuality, and can be heard exclusively below.

The impactful punk rock song, “All Just Pretending”, tells a story of staying true to yourself in the face of adversity, and is soon to become an anthem for women, and anyone else who’s been discriminated for who they are. Check out LuLu Lewis’ harlem punk sound below! - Idobi Radio


"WEEK IN POP: INSPIRED & THE SLEEP, WEEED, WORK DRUGS { D.A. Stern, Lulu Lewis, Sheer, Young Clancy, guest selections by HEALTH. }"

Lulu Lewis presents the world premiere for grandiose anthem “All Just Pretending” that jumps off of a vintage silver-screen styled score to wreck some holy hell in today’s unruly times. Produced by performers/song authors & vocalist Dylan Hundley, Pablo Martin (of Mimi Maura, Tom Tom Club guitarist, J-Zone and Pablo Martin are The Du-Rites), with William X Harvey (from Danger Painters, Urban Verbs), Jay Mumford (oka J-Zone) & the versatile Walter Vernon Baker to create a big-band style tower of sound to stand for all time. Hundley’s twentieth-century style delivery rings out loud to the ends of the earth & extents of the heavens to sing a song of autonomy that eschews all middlemen & go-betweens in the name of unified statement through sound of mind, soul, body & voice.

“All Just Pretending” finds Lulu Lewis casting aside the fakers while dealing out a taste of the real thing. Every note, chord & bar strikes with a ferocious might that quakes with a furious fist clenched might & no shortage of self-confidence. With the chorus refrain of “I can do this on my own”, Dylan & crew move in like a fashionable flash mob that takes control of the scene with their own ever-expanding aesthetic of timeless music tropes. Lulu Lewis takes the luster of old Hollywood pop glamor and spikes up the glitz that stares down the goonish glares of tinsel town industry goons in the name of doing things their way. Dylan Hundley takes on the performer/songwriter role that is situated in the driver’s seat-calling the shots & compass routes as she described to us with the following reflections on “All Just Pretending”: - Impose Magazine


"SPILL MUSIC PREMIERE: LULU LEWIS – “ALL JUST PRETENDING”"

“This track was born from a place of strength and self recovery. Pablo and I really embrace the ability that modern technology affords us in terms of being able to have the tools to record and create music and video at will, without having to ask anyones permission or having to somehow prove yourself before you can create. We do absolutely everything in house. There is great strength and freedom in that. The self recovery aspect comes from the act of allowing oneself to flourish. That was hard for me for a time in my life. This song is, in part, me singing out that I’ve left any self doubt, self sabotage and toxic anything behind and am claiming…my songs. This is what it means to me. Pablo and I wrote these words entirely as a team though. It comes from a similar place of strength in us both.” – Dylan Hundley (Lulu Lewis) - The Spill


"VIDEO PREMIERE: LULU LEWIS UNMASK AND EMPOWER ON FILMIC “ALL JUST PRETENDING”"

No matter your head-space, “All Just Pretending” will transport you to another plane, reminding you that survival rests in your hands alone and that shadows lurk around every corner. Lulu Lewis are a force to be reckoned with, wielding a progressive spirit of artistry and passion that promises to engulf us in waves of raucous ire and self-sufficient delight. - Atwood Magazine

"Dylan Hundley of Lulu Lewis"

“SONG FOR EWE” is the feature where artists & music people beloved by VELVET SHEEP choose an obscure song they’ve been listening to that day. Today’s guest is the singer of a colourful garage band called Lulu Lewis. Dylan Hundley‘s deadpan vocal style is somewhere between Suicide, DEVO, and the Flying Lizards, while backed up by horn infused punk that’s a bit James Chance, a bit The Saints, and a slice of Roxy Music, led by Pablo Martin, ex lead guitar of Tom Tom Club and from acclaimed funk band The Du-Rites. Dylan, from New York, is all about the visuals, and has had a glittering career in movies both in front of the camera (acting in “Metropolitan”, “Dangerous Game” and “Last Days of Disco” amongst many others), and behind as a producer (“Buzzkill”). She’s also got impeccable musical nous, as her choice of tune attests. I’m very pleased to welcome to these pages, the singularly talented and unmistakably charming Dylan Hundley!

"WEEK IN POP: CONFIDENT HITMAKERS, LULU LEWIS, NIHILIST CHEERLEADER"

In today’s era of sample & preset-plugged compositions, organic emulations of late twentieth century styles & aesthetics in the current era have become more of a rare phenomenon. While there are many that have the ability to mimic anachronistic audio facsimiles through lo-fi tricks & tweaks, it is even more unusual for a band to recreate & revise the arrangements, arts & attitudes in explicit detail from those previous epochs. Enter Harlem’s own Lulu Lewis comprised of couple Dylan Hundley (known for work with Whit Stillman) & Pablo Martin (also lead guitarist for Tom Tom Club) who possess the keen ability to recreate & redevelop the loudest & brightest components of 1970s-centered rock & roll in full high-fidelity that pulls no punches & makes no excuses. Lulu Lewis epitomizes vintage pop constructs in such a way that boomerangs those big productions of yesteryears forward to today’s audiences that can just barely recall the creative contributions of the 1990s.

Presenting the world premiere for Lulu Lewis’s “One Note Rock and Roll” video from Ilegalia Records and Pictures that sets the focus primarily on a fixed camera focused on Dylan hunkering down in her apartment. A song that is centered around mayhem, hysteria & outlandish paranoia is presented visually in accordance to the mood of being holed-up in the band’s abode while a sense of chaos threatens to interrupt the group’s sanctuary at any given moment. Contrasting the minimalism of the grainy & gritty fixed-camera view is the group’s big boisterous presentation that is complete with a big brass section & a rhythm organ that all alludes to the bedlam that has broken out. The emotional subtext is delivered expertly visually through Dylan’s gestures, facial gesticulations & intense stares as she recounts states of confusion, anarchy & emergencies that are all centered around the single, solitary subject matter of “One Note Rock and Roll”. The Ilegalia Pictures visual mirrors the primitivism implied by the track where a scenario involving the rest of the band scattered about leaves Lulu Lewis with a singular note to riff on—while matters grow more strange by the second. And still with all this, “One Note Rock and Roll” rides forward with a rich arrangement of various notes & chord-collections that resurrects the spirit of 1973 for our present year of 2018. As the song chugs onward, Dylan Hundley is seen playing up all the intensity implied in the song as strange & surreal situations teeter on the brink of absolute oblivion. - Impose Magazine

Lulu Lewis bringing the fist-clenched punch & presence with a host of classic meets contemporary brash bravado with brass & psyched-out electric organs just for the occasion. - Impose Magazine Week in Pop 11/10/17 - One Note Rock and Roll review

Harlem based, Lulu Lewis hurl you into a Western and neo noir late night film. It’s hard not to envision the gritty guitar tones, Chris Isaak-y “Heart Shaped World” album melodies and the velvety vocals against some black and white shots. Their single “All Just Pretending” is an electrifying “commentary on womanhood, individuality and the struggle that can ensue while trying to stay true to oneself in the face of adversity, be it personal or societal”. It’s anthem-like, rock sensibilities are upheld by Dylan Hundley’s impassioned vocals, reminding us that we don’t need to rely on others when we have ourselves. Her styling interchanges from and almost growling, vehement tone to a more hushed, quietly confident tone.  Add some 60’s inspired melodies, those always pleasing drawn out organ notes and some punk, distorted guitars and you have the rousing Lulu Lewis sound. - Fridge Feed on All Just Pretending

Bold, pop rocking with soulful touches and a punkish undercurrent. - The Vinyl District EP review


Lulu Lewis mix modern and classic rock stylings, melding psychedelic, soul and post punk influences into a formidable embodiment of musicality. “All Just Pretending” feels like a cross between The Zombies and The Black Keys, and certainly its timeless message allows it to truly exist outside of the modern age. - Atwood Magazine All Just Pretending Review

Even though NYC band Lulu Lewis claims to play "Harlem Punk," we believe the term "noir-garage pop" better describes their music, which, however, is not entirely devoid of a punk vein. Fronted by magnetic and clear voiced actress, producer, visual artist and songwriter Dylan Hundley, the quartet released stylish debut video "All Just Pretending" earlier in 2017, a stripped down, abrasive track featuring an intriguingly grainy and sophisticated production. We suspect Argentinian lead guitarist Pablo Martin (previously in Tom Tom Club) had a role in it. - The Deli Magazine on Lulu Lewis
