Manchester three piece, W. H. Lung, have released their new anthemic electronic single ‘Second Death Of My Face’.

“I put down some nonsense for melody over an early draft and when I listened back it sounded like ‘my face, my face’,” singer Joseph E. explains. “The images that followed seemed filmic and the idea went from there. The chorus came to me as I fiddled on the piano in Central Library. It was big and unashamed and I was thinking of Bowie.
“My phone had died so I couldn’t record it as a voice note. I remember the panic of not wanting to lose the melody and of needing to try the idea out (out loud). I rushed home with my eyes half closed, singing it over and over in my head. It’s about watching your own life lived,” he added.
