HEAVY LUNGS – EP REVIEW


Heavy Lungs – Measure EP (Balley Records) 
Heavy Lungs - Measure EP

Release Date: 10th October 2019

Bristol outfit Heavy Lungs have been making a noise for some time now, but I think this EP might make people start to pay attention a little more. The ‘Measure’ EP opens up with ‘Half Full’ which emerges, blinking in to an inorganic sunshine full of bleeps and whistles before a throbbing rumble of a rhythm section takes the energy to another level and then the guitar vs vocal competition kicks off – I’m not sure there’s a clear winner beyond music itself. ‘Self Worth’ has a more immediate chug to it but then spirals rapidly out of control into a sound that is part Idles, part the Fall, part Stooges and part Slaves which, let’s face it, is one hell of a mosh pit to be in.

On ‘T.O.T.B.’, Heavy Lungs take things in a slinkier, more rock’n’roll approach with highly strung guitar notes having the life wrung out of them and the kind of drumming that makes you want to get back behind kit, even if you’ve never played before. The first single to be released from the album is ‘(A bit of a) Birthday’ and you can immediately understand why it was chosen with its urgent beat, filthy dirty guitar riff and general Queens of the Stone Age meets Royal Blood vibe – throw in Life meets Mark E. Smith vocals and you’ve got yourself a riot. The EP closes out with ‘Pacemaker’, a track full of drunk romance and 3.00am serenades and the kind of angular guitars you could cut yourself on if you weren’t properly prepared. Heavy Lungs are an assault on the senses, sure, but it’s the kind of assault that invigorates and refreshes and we all need that from time to time.
