If this band doesn’t blow up after SXSW, then the system is broken. “Hungry” might’ve been the best song I heard all week and singer Mish Barber-Way was a beyond powerful force on an early afternoon set on SXSW’s dreariest day. At 2013’s festival, there was some buzz about White Lung. But with the Canadian quartet embracing a pop-forward approach, their music is finally getting the recognition it rightfully deserves. This was powerful rock and roll that radiated hard enough to make the days drizzle not matter at all and it has us incredibly excited for their upcoming album, Paradise, due out May 6th on Domino Recordings. If that’s not enough, their band bio comes in the form of a Q&A with St. Vincent’s Annie Clark on their website. Talk about a co-sign.

This Saturday night Vancouver punk-rockers White Lung will return to New York for a sold out performance at Baby’s All Right. It’s a release show of sorts for their new album Paradise, which comes out tomorrow via Domino Records.
The new record has a more polished and bigger sound in many ways, a little shinier around the edges but still hits every bit as hard as you’d expect from them. Their live show is always a wonderful ball of hectic energy, and I expect the show at Baby’s to be a glorious sweaty mess
