Lewis Del Mar on Conan
How long does it take for your life to change completely? For the Rockaway Beach duo, Lewis Del Mar, less than a week, apparently. “Within five days we went from knowing zero people in the music industry, and being completely independent, to hearing from every single label that I ever knew existed,” said drummer/producer, Max Harwood, in an interview with Billboard. Since the viral debut of their single “Loud(y)” in June 2015, the experimental group has been on a whirlwind of a journey. Following a set at SXSW 2016, the release of their self-titled LP, and the launch of a US tour in the Fall of 2016, they now find themselves on their first appearance on Conan.
