Track(s) Of The Day – LUNGS – ‘Loner’ And ‘Faraway’


Meet a brand spanking new musical duo based in London by way of São Paulo and Melbourne.  Yup LUNGS combine the talents of former Guillemots guitarist MC Lord Magrão and vocalist Suzie Blake, to produce a wonderfully wrought utterly compelling, multi-faceted musical landscape, and their début release ‘Faraway/Loner’ elegantly highlights both sides of the LUNGS musical coin.

‘Faraway’ is a densely layered, gently undulating slice of dream pop, that hints at MBV minus the weapons grade OCD Mr Shields seems to suffer from, whilst the opaque menace of  ‘Loner’ exposes the bands darker predications with Blake’s airy gossamer vocals taking on a more strident quality.  It’s a hugely impressive début from the duo and it certainly whets the appetite in anticipation of what other aural delights LUNGS may have up their musical sleeves. Magnífico!

‘Faraway / Loner’ will also be available from all good digital download stores from July 29th 2013.  Pre-order here
