Albums Of The Week: Lung | Come Clean Right Now

The Ohio cello-and-drums duo display their dark powers on their third full-length.

THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE:Lung have a sound that is dark and commanding, evoking the driving sludge of early grunge with layered sinister undertones. The Cincinnati band consists of vocalist and cellist Kate Wakefield, a classically trained opera singer, and drummer Daisy Caplan, formerly of Foxy Shazam, Babe Rage, and Ayin.

Lung’s third album Come Clean Right Now was written throughout the pandemic and is a new venture in songwriting for Wakefield and Caplan. Instead of being able to write on tour or between travels, the duo traded song files they recorded themselves and eventually brought the mixes together. The final product was a record that’s diverse yet complementary to their debut and sophomore albums.

Playing shows from Nelsonville Music Festival to famed DIY venues like 924 Gilman Street, Lung have made their presence known and developed the reputation as a must-see band. Since their first performance in April 2016, the pair have played over 500 shows across North America and Europe.”
