Reaction Sheet for LUNGS ‘Faraway’ / ‘Loner’ (HR011S)


Hero Records are proud to announce the debut single by LUNGS, ‘Faraway / Loner’, available on limited 7” vinyl and digital download featuring bonus remixes from The Focussed Distraction, Hero No.7 and Objeto Amarelo on 29th July 2013.

The project of former Guillemots guitarist MC Lord Magrão and vocalist Suzie Blake, LUNGS first formed in 2012, creating sonically triumphant dreamscapes that build through layers of echoing beats, dreamy vocals and ethereal hooks.

Suzie Blake’s haunting vocals drift seamlessly over the canvas of instrumentation and depth created by MC Lord Magrão, giving a sense of what makes LUNGS one of the most exciting new acts to emerge in 2013.

On their debut release, the lush and yearning atmosphere of lead track ‘Faraway’ sets the marker for the trademark sound of LUNGS, contrasting with the menacing guitars that rush through flip-side ‘Loner’, a track showcasing the darker side of the duo.

LUNGS said of their debut release, “We are really excited about bringing out our first single, especially because it’s on vinyl. We’ve been locked up in the lounge for the past year so it feels we’re coming out of hibernation.

To mark the new release, Hero Records will be pressing ‘Faraway / Loner’ on 250 black and 250 white limited edition 7” vinyl records available to pre-order now from Hero Records Big Cartel Store. All vinyl purchases come complete with the full 5 track digital download included free.

‘Faraway / Loner’ will also be available from all good digital download stores including iTunes, Amazon, Juno Download and Beatport from July 29th 2013.

“Ignore them at your peril and embrace them with open arms for they could be the most exciting thing you experience this year” News Beats Media

“United in their harsh, futuristic vision, a cocktail of sounds with poison in the centre” This Is Fake DIY

“The music brings to me a very trip hop feel, taking me back to Tricky, Portishead and early Massive Attack. The voice reminiscent of Belinda Butcher (My Bloody Valentine) mixed with Micky (Lush) and Toni Halliday of Curve … This was more than just a band, this was art attempting to connect on multiple levels.” Indie Dunes
