After garnering steady praise following a string of hard-hitting releases including 2012’s Sorry LP and last year’s “Blow It South” single, Vancouver punk outfit White Lung has found a new label in Domino Recording Company. To kick off their new-found partnership, the band has announced a forthcoming 7-inch single and shared the music video for its A-side, “Drown with the Monster”.
Here, the band sound angry as ever, with menacing guitars and drums soundtracking frontwoman Mish Way’s formidable screams. With the music video showcasing the group’s crazed and intense live show, it’s easy to imagine hearing “Drown with the Monster” in concert, assaulting your eardrums—in a good way.
In the press materials, Way describes “Drown with the Monster” as follows:
“I was looking at these pieces by Andrea Mary Marshall in The New Inquiry and there was this quote from her, ‘Toxic Women are toxic to themselves. They are Tragic Heroines who blow dry their own wounds. I aspire to be the opposite.’ This song is about kicking habits and running away with a new distraction. It’s a song about my two biggest vices, but I’d rather drown with the monster than blow dry my wounds.”
Drown with the Monster is out April 29th via Domino.
