W. H. Lung will release their debut album in April, following 2017's 10" debut Inspiration!/Nothing Is. We're told that the Manchester-founded band allowed the LP to gestate over the course of two years, and that the result is a remarkably considered debut: the production is crisp and pristine but not over-polished, the synths and electronics radiate and hum with a golden aura, and the vocals weave between tender delivery and forceful eruptions. There is a palpable energy to the songs, as experienced in 10 glorious minutes of opening statement "Simpatico People." The sound switches between shimmering synth-pop and the infectious grooves of '70s Berlin.
