New to Me: Copper Lungs

Wee shout up from the team at A Badge of Friendship and they’re recommending I take a listen to these fine upstanding gents from Dundee.  Who am I to argue.  Well I’m me and I’m a grumpy old bastard but I’ve had a listen and there’s no argument from me – cracking stuff !!

Heres the blurb and a liddle bid of musik to treat your ickle lugs to…………………


Following on from last year’s debut album, Louder, Copper Lungs return in 2014 with their self-titled EP due for release on April 25th 2014 via Thin Hippo Records.

Copper Lungs, consisting of Darren Lindsay (vocals/guitar), John Cargill (guitar/vox), Jamie Mayes (bass/keys) and Sean Crossan (drums), were formed in 2011 in Dundee. Drawing on influences such as Two Door Cinema Club and Phoenix, the band have produced their own powerful blend of melodic harmonized vocally-driven pop rock, a sound that should see them attract a diverse fan base.

The upcoming EP sees the band’s sound evolve even further as they enter the next phase of their musical development, with an intensity that can only be attained through experience. Lock four people together in a tour bus for long enough, and they’ll either kill each other or gain enough perspective to create something that’s truly remarkable. In this case Copper Lungs have achieved the latter.

Copper Lungs wastes no time building up momentum – the explosive opening track “Lego” showcases a band working together seamlessly like a well oiled machine as they create a definitive wall of sound. The band maintains this intensity with second track, “How Long”, before the EP winds down, as Darren’s vocals take centre stage. Backed by the band’s sweeping and epic melodies, it’s safe to say that Copper Lungs have spent the time since their debut album honing their sound, using their experiences on the road and in the studio to create a mature and accomplished release.

With an EP tour in the works that will see Copper Lungs playing their very first English dates and the release of the forthcoming EP, we’re sure 2014 has plenty in store for the Dundee four piece.

Copper Lungs is released April 25th 2014 via Thin Hippo Records.” (a badge of friendship, Jan 2014)
