NEWS: W.H. Lung share anthemic ‘How to Walk’ video and announce album

Cutting edge Mancunian synth pop outfit W.H. Lung have announced their new album Every Inch of Earth Pulsates, due for release on 18th October via Melodic. Their upcoming album captures the energy, spirit and dynamism of their live shows as they blossom into one of the most joyous and engaging live bands in the country. Their infectious energy is perfectly reflected in their widescreen, anthemic lead single ‘How to Walk’, with its driving, propulsive charge complete with incandescent synths and vocal melodies so irresistible you can already hear the crowd singing along “I can’t wait to play this live,” says Evans. “We wanted a song to represent our live set, a new big one, and this is it. The reason I’m in a band is to play live music,” says Evans, whose wild movement on stage makes him one of the most enigmatic front people around. “For me, music is live music. That’s what it’s for; to be played with people.

Their upcoming album follows  Incidental Music (2019) and Vanities (2021) and is rooted in a sense of capturing a moment and a sparky liveness. As well as capturing that raw energy, it is still a meticulously composed, delicately layered and pristinely produced piece of work that, in true W.H. Lung style, runs the gauntlet from dance to pop to indie while still capturing that distinctly unique quality that is unquestionably their own. It’s a significant leap forward, expanding on their solid foundations while also breaking new ground. “The big difference with this record is its directness in every sense,” says Sharkett.

The band moved to Sheffield to work for the first time with Ross Orton (MIA, Arctic Monkeys, Working Men’s Club), who was able to harness this side of the band to remarkable effect. “Ross is the Sheffield Steve Albini,” says singer Joseph Evans. “He’s the king of not overthinking it and trusting the process of the art of recording songs. He was always there to stop us fucking around with cerebral stuff and get it down.” guitarist Tom Sharkett echoes this too: “He was the exact producer we needed without us even realising. His productions and mixes are bombastic, lively and in your face. He brought a real dose of magic to the songs we’d written.
