Elsa Lester, aka Lisa van Kampen, is a Dutch singer/songwriter with a penchant for no-frills guitar-pop.
Working under a previous guise of Great Profile, she released debut album Stress Relief in 2017. Written, recorded and produced in her bedroom at her parent’s house, the record is 30 minutes of catchy-as-can-be fuzzed-up guitar-pop imbued with heart, soul and bouts of vulnerability.
Introducing to her new moniker, Elsa Lester has stepped out with a super new single ‘Pretty Bad, Man’ and news of a forthcoming EP, Dinner Party penned for release on July 6th through Z Tapes. ‘Pretty Bad, Man’ is three-minutes of guitar-pop perfection. It is endearingly ramshackle lo-fi, garage-indebted guitar-pop with an upbeat fizzy energy and coated in a warm layer of fuzz, and those riffs, man, they are sensational. Just sensational! An irresistibly infectious little earmworm, it will be fizzing around your head for days and days.
You can sample the delights of ‘Pretty Bad, Man’ below & remember, the EP will be out on July 6. And if the new single is to your liking, Elsa Lester’s debut album Stress Relief comes highly recommended – listen to it here.
