WATCH: White Lung Hope You’re “Hungry” in New Video
Paradise is due May 6 on Domino.
Vancouver’s White Lung saw their exposure increase greatly after the release of 2014’s Deep Fantasy, with singer (and journalist) Mish Barber-Way becoming an influential voice in the conversation around the obstacles faced by women in music. Now, the band are preparing to release Paradise, their fourth full-length, on Domino on May 6. They’ve shared a video for lead single “Hungry,” which you can watch below.
With its soft vocal harmonies and clear guitars, “Hungry” represents something of a shift away from the grime of Deep Fantasy. “There’s this really stupid attitude that only punks have where it’s somehow uncool to become a better songwriter. 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.” Barber-Way tells Annie Clark in an interview on White Lung’s website. “I have no interest in staying in kindergarten.”
