"It would be nice if something made sense for a change." ~ Lewis Carol (Alice in Wonderland)
At risk of throwing too many surreal pop culture references into the soup, I've a feeling we are not in Kansas anymore. And if you still choose to taste the soup, please remember... there is no spoon!
In all honesty, Los Angeles based quartet Little Red Lung are not that weird. But they are unique and it's their meticulous attention to detail, be it in the form of song writing or post production, that sets them apart from their peers. There's strange and interesting for strange and interesting's sake - and bands like that are as empty as the tin man's chest.
But Little Red Lung are as genuine as they come and you can hear it. Songs are laced with trauma, hope, frustration and and an underlying tension that seeps out of the cracks and runs down the walls. And you can't help but watch.
Their music will take some time to fully appreciate. It's not going to be everyone's cup of tea, but should you get to the tea party, you will have one hell of a time... real or otherwise. *Spin totem now.
In this interview, Little Red Lung members Zoe-Ruth Erwin and Ali Nikou chatted about their new album Beware, scathing reviews, popcorn, living on a deserted island and much much more!
