LUMP have served up another taste of their forthcoming record with their delicious new single, ‘Climb Every Wall’.
The electro-folk duo consists of the imitable Laura Marling and Tunng leader Mike Lindsay. LUMP announced last month that their second collaborative record, Animal, would be released on July 30th, and they shared the titular track to tease fans.
Now they are back again with ‘Climb Every Wall’, and hearing Marling in this fresh setting is exciting. She’s clearly enjoying being away from the pressures of her solo career, and working with Lindsay in LUMP, she gets to experiment into new sonic territories.
The album was recorded by LUMP at Lindsay’s home studio in Margate, and the experience of creating the record was an exhilarating one, which translates on the blistering, ‘Climb Every Wall’.
“It became a very different thing about escaping a persona that has become a burden to me in some way,” Marling commented in a press release about working on the new LUMP material. “It was like putting on a superhero costume,” she added.
“I was taking the train down, and I had prepped by putting a glossary of words in the back of my notebook,” Marling said in regards to the songwriting approach she adopted for the album.
The Mercury-nominated artist continued: “Ordinary words that are used differently within psychoanalysis, like ‘object’ and ‘master’; I felt I needed something to base the lyrics off. I like the idea that psychoanalysis attempts to investigate the routes of desire.”
Marling is one of the finest talents this shore has created in recent history. LUMP has become another vehicle for her to express a different side to her musical persona. The electronic aspect to the track crafted by Lindsay works as a beautiful foil for Marling, and over here at Far Out, we can’t wait to hear Animal next month.
