W. H. Lung is a recording project founded in Manchester in mid-2016. Its first single to yield is the dream-like and shifting ‘Inspiration!’, recorded at The Nave in Leeds and produced by Matt Peel (Eagulls). A song that speaks to the ideas of eternity, belonging and meaninglessness, it takes the shape of a kraut/psych peregrination; persevering but never dull, and bringing it home before the break. 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. W. H. Lung continue to write and record. The debut album ‘Incidental Music’ drops 5th April 2019 on Melodic Records.

W.H LUNG – ” Want “

W. H. Lung (635)

Manchester recent newcomers W.H. Lung continue to impress with new cut ‘Want’.

The band’s sound is immediately infectious yet difficult to place; off kilter guitar pop with swathes of electronics, their never-ending percussive chug recalls Neu! at their most expansive.

New song ‘Want‘ is a mini-epic, a masterpiece in control and release, with those impeccable Krautrock influences set against an innate pop sensibility.

Perfectly sized to occupy the side of a seven inch single, ‘Want‘ acts as a sort of mini-manifesto, with W.H. Lung barking out Kerouac’s advice: “First thought, best thought!”

W.H LUNG – ” Really Something “

Taking inspiration for their name from the popular Chinese cash and carry, W.H. Lung is a recording project founded in Manchester in late-2016.

Its first release, recorded at The Nave in Leeds and produced by Matt Peel, was double A-side single ‘Inspiration!’ / ‘Nothing Is’. The experimental tracks locate ideas of eternity and belonging in a peregrination through the absurdity of meaninglessness, and have drawn comparisons to influential Krautrock band Neu! with vocal comparisons to David Byrne.

After making their live debut in May this year playing at The Anthony Burgess Foundation, they bagged slots at some of the best emerging talent festivals such as Blue Dot, End of the Road and Liverpool International Festival of Psychedelia.

W.H. Lung jump in the pool for ‘Nothing Is’

Manchester’s W.H Lung who take their name from a local supermarket, don’t pay much heed to convention. They might have just two songs out there – ‘Nothing Is’ and flip-side ‘Inspiration!’ – but their output to date still clocks in at the length of an average EP.

As you’d perhaps expect, then, their new video isn’t any old montage of brick walls and shaky gig footage; instead, W.H. Lung have set up in a (thankfully empty) swimming pool in Manchester to run through ‘Nothing Is’ live. Hazy and meandering, with a bit of fist-clenching euphoria in the mix, too, the performance’s ‘Really Something!’ title is an apt summary.

W.H. Lung are set to play at The Green Man Festival this weekend.

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

The band, who formed just a few months ago, recorded at The Nave in Leeds and describe it as “a song that speaks to the ideas of eternity, belonging and meaninglessness.”

It was produced by Matt Peel, who’s also recently worked with Eagulls, and will be released via their own label, Hed Glo Inc. on 25th November.

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.
