Deep Fantasy by White Lung on Apple Music

10 Songs

EDITORS’ NOTES

Ten songs in 22 minutes guarantee that Deep Fantasy keeps up the overpowering pace that the Vancouver punks White Lung started on their second album, Sorry, which established the group as an exciting new band and singer Mish Way as a no-nonsense leader. Way is back with more melody than ever, and guitarist Kenneth William mixes it up between unusual guitar riffs and straight-out power chords for maximum effect. “Drown with the Monster” kicks things off in full attack mode, but “Down It Goes” makes it clear that the band does want to be accessible to more than just punk audiences. In fact, tracks like “Face Down,” “I Believe You,” “Wrong Star," and “Just for You” make for a catchy middle of the album, where it’s impossible to not sing along with the anthemic choruses. The album even rallies for speed with the exciting “Lucky One,” which gets it all done in two minutes; then it finishes with the layered guitar/keyboard sounds of “In Your Home.”

About White Lung

White Lung are a four-piece indie rock group from Vancouver, B.C., influenced by riot grrrl, post-punk, and hardcore punk. Singer Mish Way, drummer Anne Marie Vassiliou, bassist Grady MacIntosh, and guitarist Kenny McCorkell formed the band in 2006, and the Local Garbage 7" was released in 2007. The record went mostly unnoticed until the girls (and guy) were interviewed by Maximum Rocknroll for a cover story. A contract followed with Canadian hardcore label Deranged Records, and in true indie/punk fashion, they released more 7" records (Magazines and Atlanta) before issuing their first full-length album, It's the Evil. In May of 2012 they released their follow-up LP, Sorry, before leaving on a tour with Ceremony and Wax Idols. Another 7" arrived on Deranged in 2013. Also that year, MacIntosh parted ways with the band. The following year, they signed with the Domino Recording Company and released their third album Deep Fantasy. In 2016 White Lung returned with the Lars Stalfors-produced Paradise. ~ Jason Lymangrover
