this album rekindled my belief in
straight up ROCK AND ROLL
in a big way
these songs are downright emotional, and delivered with a hard punch

confident, serious, relevant, personal
turn the volume way up and push play
beginning to end a mosh pit rager
chipped nail polish and bruised elbows
so much energy and carefully crafted song structure

what a great singer yes, but the whole group is such a good fit for her

you're seeing a super star rock band in the making

ᴬᴬᴿᴼᴺⅉ. Absolutely rad- I can’t even remember how I came across these cats but DAMN do they crush it! I can’t really liken them to anything else I’ve been listening to lately... no comparison really seems to do them justice. I reckon the vocals are what sets their music so far apart from everything else, but I gotta compliment the guitarist as well as the drummer. Frenetic. Melodic. I don’t know whether to sing along or start a circle pit. I’ll try both. Favorite track: Hungry.

EthelTheFrog Hands down my favorite album of 2016. Extremely energetic and emotional. Those guitar lines in "Narcoleptic" should be enough to turn anyone into a fan.

about

After the critically acclaimed release Deep Fantasy (2014), White Lung return with their fourth album Paradise. Vocalist Mish Barber-Way, guitarist Kenneth William and drummer Anne-Marie Vassiliou, reconnected in Los Angeles to work with engineer and producer Lars Stalfors (HEALTH, Cold War Kids, Alice Glass). In October of 2015, White Lung spent a month in the studio, working closely with Stalfors to challenge what could be done with their songs. “I wanted it to sound new. I wanted a record that sounded like it was made in 2016”, says William of his mindset. Bringing all the energy, unique guitar work and lyrical prowess Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, NME have praised them for in the past few years, White Lung curated their songs with a new pop sensibility. Mixed by Stalfors and later mastered by Joe LaPorta, Paradise is their smartest, brightest songwriting yet.
“There’s this stupid attitude that only punks have where it’s uncool to become a better song writer,” says Barber-Way, “In no other musical genre are your fans going to drop you when you start progressing. That would be like parents being disappointed in their child for graduating from kindergarten to the first grade. Paradise is the best song writing we have ever done, and I expect the next record to be the same. I have no interest in staying in kindergarten.”
