W.H. Lung are a mystery – there’s no doubt about it. We first met the Manchester trio back in late 2016 with the release of their David Byrne-esque debut track ‘Inspiration!’. Now, nearly a year on, with multiple festival appearences and a fuck load of hype under their belts, the three are back with their second single.
A mashup of Kraftwerk and Hookworms, ‘WANT’ is a pure electronic feast. It’s trippy and spaced-out; poppy yet infectious. Recorded by Matt Peel (Eagulls/Pulled Apart By Horses) at Leeds’ The Nave, synth notes bop around to a jarring drum beat as reverb-laden vocals twist and sublimely wind their way through the track’s four minutes. Once again, W.H. Lung prove to be the masters of hypnotic tunes – and we’re just living in their world.
