#197: Introducing...LUNGS

Having formed dream-pop duo LUNGS in early 2012 with singer Suzie Blake, it seems that the departure of MC Lord Magrão from indie-rockers Guillemots was almost inevitable, even if he didn’t know it yet. With the new found freedom at their disposal, it took LUNGS roughly six weeks from the date of Magrão’s departure to release their debut single ‘Faraway’, establishing an aesthetic birthed from the cloying conditions occasionally found when part of a band. There’s a sense of freedom within their music, exhibited by Magrão and Blake both; a definite feeling of emancipation  that can only stem from finding yourself with complete creative control.
