Lung is a growling, propulsive electric cello and drum duo from Cincinnati, OH. Cellist and vocalist Kate Wakefield vacillates seamlessly between sweetly plucked notes to shrieking squalls atop a relentless pounding beat from drummer Daisy Caplan (ex-Foxy Shazam).
The band's sophomore album, 'All the King's Horses' (due out on SofaBurn on September 7, 2018 (CD) and October 26, 2018 (Vinyl)) is a splendid encapsulation of their intense live performance. Tracks from All the King's Horses show a maturation in the band's songwriting and an evolution in content. There is a more demanding and provocative edge to the record that illustrates undeniable feelings of paranoia and unease with the onset of the Trump presidency. "We were in Texas during the election. Nobody could believe it. We were playing small towns and big cities alike. The feeling was intense; a new uncomfortable normal began to take over," said Wakefield on the experience.
