Lump - Animal (LIMITED TURQUOISE WHITE SWIRL VINYL)
Marling & Lindsay return with this effortlessly cool slice of delightful indie-pop, driven on by a propulsive heartbeat and an alluring penchant for thwarting expectations.
‘Animal’ was a word Laura Marling threw into a lyric simply to meet a rhythm but it seemed to capture the mood of the new record, and of Lump as a whole. “There’s a little bit of a theme of hedonism on the album, of desires running wild,” she says. “and also it fed into the idea we had from the start of thinking of lump as a kind of representation of instincts, and the world turned upside down.” It is something childlike and grotesque and filled with possibility, they say. “We created Lump as a sort of persona and an idea and a creature,” says Mike Lindsay. “Through Lump we find our inner animal, and through that animal we travel into a parallel universe.”
