Weaving between shimmering synth pop and the infectious grooves of 70’s Berlin, W.H. Lung will release their debut album Incidental Music on the 5th April via Melodic

We’ve got the second single from the record for you. The bulk of Second Death Of My Face was developed on the piano of Manchester’s Central Library, and it is a five and half minute epic, with cathartic lyrics and soaring crescendos – probably their most anthemic release so far…

w-h-lung

With foundations in Manchester, W. H. Lung is a three piece that have just shared a first single that is a quite spectacular, breathtaking near-eight minute epic.

Inspiration! speaks to the ideas of eternity, belonging and meaninglessness, it takes the shape of a pulsing, kraut-psych journey. The motorik nature of the track stems from W. H. Lung’s writing ethic which, with an Alesis drum machine at its core, aims to create a surrounding maelstrom of ethereal circuits and hypnotic rhythms.

We love this. Listen below.
