LUMP is a new band that teams up Laura Marling and Tunng’s Mike Lindsay. Their self-titled debut album, LUMP, is due out June 1 via Dead Oceans. Previously they shared a video for its first single, “Curse of the Contemporary” (which was our #2 Song of the Week), as well as its second single, the atmospheric slow-burner “Late to the Flight” (which was also one of our Songs of the Week). Now “Late to the Flight” has a video that features the fuzzy LUMP character from the “Curse of the Contemporary” video dancing in front of a mirror. Esteban Diacono directed the video, which a press release says is a prequel to the “Curse of the Contemporary” video. Watch it below, followed by the duo’s upcoming tour dates.

LUMP also performed “Curse of the Contemporary” on the BBC music show Later… with Jools Holland last night. We already posted video of their performance last night, but it’s below again, in case you missed it.

Marling and Lindsay met when Marling supported Neil Young at a London show in June 2016 and they discovered that they were mutual fans of each other’s work. The collaboration grew from there.

A previous press release explained some of things that influenced Marling’s lyrics for LUMP: “Inspired by early-20th-century Surrealism and the absurdist poetry of Edward Lear and Ivor Cutler, she wanted to slice through the apparent emptiness of contemporary life. Her resulting creation is a bizarre but compelling narrative about the commodification of curated public personas, the mundane absurdity of individualism, and the lengths we go to escape our own meaninglessness.”

Marling’s last album, Semper Femina, was released in 2017 via More Alarming Records, which is Marling’s own label via Kobalt Music Recordings.
