As well as their debut album, W. H. Lung also released the equally special standalone single Symmetry in 2019.
W. H. Lung have today confirmed the details of their second studio record Vanities.
Available on Melodic Records from September 3rd, it’s being previewed with the first single Pearl In The Palm – ‘a transition from the old W. H. Lung to the new’, an example of the even more dance orientated sound which the band explored as they made a conscious effort to not produce ‘Incidental Music part 2’.
“We wanted to move away from easing people in and grab them by the heart straight away,” singer Joe Evans elaborates.
“I reflected on how we played live shows and romanticised about launching onto the stage in a bundle of energy and starting the party, no messing. The directness comes from making music more intuitively, and more from a place of fun.”
“We were writing music that affirmed how much we missed dancing in sweaty rooms, enjoying the company of a collection of beautiful friendly strangers.”
A Live4ever album of the year in 2019, Incidental Music has only gotten better with age and now surely stands as one of the last decade’s great final statements.
