LUMP – ” Animal “

Posted: June 19, 2021 in MUSIC

LUMP is the product of Mike Lindsay & Laura Marling, One of our favourite collaborations – from Brit Award-winning Marling and Mercury Prize-winning Lindsay – returns with a brand new single and a brand new album. ‘Animal’ was a word Laura Marling threw into a lyric simply to meet a rhythm. But it seemed to capture the mood of the new record, and of LUMP as a whole. “There’s a little bit of a theme of hedonism on the album, of desires running wild,” she says. “And also it fed into the idea we had from the start of thinking of LUMP as a kind of representation of instincts, and the world turned upside down.” It is something childlike and grotesque and filled with possibility.

 they return with a new track from their forthcoming album “Animal” – out July 30th.

“Climb Every Wall” is from ‘Animal’, the new album out 30th July via Chrysalis and Partisan Records.

“I’d watched a film called ‘The Perverts Guide to Ideology’ about how ideology is woven into Hollywood cinema, and there was a bit about how in Communist countries they cut out the song “Climb Every Mountain” from the ‘Sound of Music’ because it’s too much of a personal, individualistic ideology, so that’s where I got the title.”

LUMP began in 2018, a collaboration between Lindsay co-founder of band Tunng, and the singer-songwriter Laura Marling. Their debut was released that summer, unveiling a world that was tangibly different to their work apart, sonically “so vivid and sort of psychedelic,” Marling says, “and the lyrics so un-thought through”.
