Cincinnati two-piece, Lung, has been keeping busy this summer. While on their summer long tour, Lung has released the single “Butcher” off their upcoming full-length project, All the King’s Horses, due September 8, 2018.
Lung’s single “Butcher”sees the two-piece enter familiar territory. Backed by Daisy Caplan’s powerful drumming and Kate Wakefield’s ardent cello playing, we hear Wakefield’s voice go from beautifully eerie to a dazzling fervor from verse to chorus. The results are a captivating high energy song sure to be a crowd pleaser during Lung’s invigorating live shows.
With lyrics such as “mom killed the butcher’s wife, she never came around much after that”, the listener is immediately intrigued by the unfolding narrative being told by Lung. Along with being a live show crowd-pleaser, the at-home listener can enjoy the song’s intricacies provided by Lung’s songwriting, John Hoffman’s recording, and Alex Hug’s mastering.
Along with the single release, a music video for “Butcher” has premiered on New Noise Magazine’s website with commentary provided by Wakefield. The brilliant music video was shot by Patrick Hague, with art direction by Rachelle Caplan.
“Butcher”will be featured on Lung’s sophomore album, All the King’s Horses, set for a September 8, 2018 release through SofaBurn Records.
Lung will be returning to Cincinnati for their album release show on September 8, 2018 hosted by Urban Artifact.
