WHITE LUNG – ” Below “

White Lung fans were caught off guard by Paradise. It wasn’t the same pissed-off punk band they remembered from 2014’s crushing Deep Fantasy. Instead, the band experimented with a few new tricks this time around, namely, third-person storytelling, a poppier sound, and some full-on singing from frontwoman Mish Barber-Way, as opposed to the angry snarls she’d become known for. While White Lung’s core DNA is still intact on Paradise, the record is a fun exploration of what they can do with it. And for a band testing ambitious new territories, they pulled off a surprisingly cohesive record that sees them pushing their limits with ease and confidence. It’s impossible to say where White Lung will go from here, and that’s the way they like it. The high-octane punk band from Vancouver brought its buzz-saw guitar sound and unwavering vocals to the CBC Music studios for a five-song session of Polaris-worthy material. You’d expect a band named White Lung to have some vocal chops — and indeed, singer Mish Way-Barber is a commanding performer.
