White Lung Details

White Lung

If you ever get the chance to do karaoke with Mish Way, don’t even hesitate. Just go for it, right away. You really do owe it to yourself. About a year ago I found myself in a Lower East Side karaoke bar with Mish and various New York music gadflies. We’d become fast friends (Way and I, that is. I was already friends with most of said gadflies) after she began regularly contributing smart, open-hearted and often blush-inducing pieces to the Talkhouse, a website I help run, and I’d been a fan of her band since I’d heard White Lung’s 2012 Sorry, a hardcore blitzkrieg that doesn’t even hit the 20-minute-mark. But despite seeing her perform just a day before the karaoke party, it wasn’t until, goaded by peer pressure and an appropriately inappropriate amount of whiskey, Way took the mic for a revelatory rendition of one of the worst songs of this century. I won’t embarrass her by naming it. (Maybe you can get it out of her.) But it was at that moment that I realized “Damn. She can sing. Like, really, really sing. Not just growl. Damn.”

I think a lot of people are going to have that reaction when they hear Deep Fantasy, the third album from White Lung and their first for Domino Records. She is really, really singing here. But don’t worry. She hasn’t gone soft on us or anything. Again working with producer Jesse Gander (who did both Sorry and their 2010 debut It’s the Evil), White Lung are every bit as confrontational as before, but they’ve managed to open their sound up just enough to draw listeners in before kicking them in the face. (In a good way.)

“I wanted it to sound more like a rock record than a punk record. I didn’t want to lose any of the speed and aggression that we have, but I wanted more melodies,” says Way, calling from her new home in Los Angeles. “But it’s still a really hard record.”
