Since releasing their first EP in 2018, they’ve won over the ears of some of the biggest names in the business and earned themselves one of the most loyal fanbases around. Now armed with 5 new tracks released on The Idles Balley Records label, they’re ready to unleash their most ambitious, outspoken and expressive work yet. Measure. EP opener ‘Half Full’ kicks things off frantically with a crescendo of feedback and raw vocals.
Next up is ‘Self-Worth,’an intoxicating track that exploits even more controlled chaos. ‘T.O.T.B’s arena-sized choruses make for an instant sing-along, whilst first single ‘(A bit of a) Birthday’s gnarly riff and fuzzy guitar work takes the aggression up another notch. Closing the EP is ‘Pacemaker,’an atmospheric and suitably captivating record that rounds things of nicely. On creating the EP, frontman Danny Nedelko added:“Measure centres around the undeniable importance of self-worth. From inner observation of myself and of the people around me over the course of past year, I’ve noticed that it can sometimes very much be neglected. The purpose of this EP is to hopefully remind us to value ourselves and grow more comfortable in our skin -to believe in ourselves. Our own inner strength and capabilities are vastly superior to our own perception of them.”
Rising up in Bristol’s thriving punk scene, Heavy Lungs have previously released 2 EPs, headlined multiple tours and shared the stage with the likes of Idles. In fact, Idles’ track ‘Danny Nedelko’ is named after Heavy Lungs’ frontman and their friendship extends as far as joint releases and touring together.
