About this item

‘Animal’ was a word Laura Marling threw into a lyric simply to meet a rhythm. But it seemed to capture the mood of the new record, and of LUMP as a whole. “There’s a little bit of a theme of hedonism on the album, of desires running wild,” she says. “And also it fed into the idea we had from the start of thinking of LUMP as a kind of representation of instincts, and the world turned upside down.” It is something childlike and grotesque and filled with possibility, they say. “We created LUMP as a sort of persona and an idea and a creature,” says Mike Lindsay. “Through LUMP we find our inner animal, and through that animal we travel into a parallel universe.”

LUMP is the product of Brit Award-winning Laura Marling and Mercury Prize-winning Mike Lindsay. LUMP's second album 'Animal' will be released on 30th July 2021 on Chrysalis Records & Partisan Records." 


Barry says: Aah, Lump. Their last (self-titled) LP hit the heady heights of #2 in our 2018 end-of-year chart, and i'd be very surprised if this didn't do similarly well. Wonderfully scatty folktronica percussion and syncopated instrumentation works away behind Marling's brittle vocals, forging a perfect juxtaposition of tender moments and off-kilter outsider pop.
