LUMP, the duo of Laura Marling and Mike Lindsay, have shared the second single from their upcoming album Animal. ‘Climb Every Wall’ arrives with an accompanying video shot and edited by Tamsin Topolski and Mora Laming. Check it out below.
“I’d watched a film called ‘The Perverts Guide to Ideology’ about how ideology is woven into Hollywood cinema, and there was a bit about how in Communist countries they cut out the song ‘Climb Every Mountain’ from the ‘Sound of Music’ because it’s too much of a personal, individualistic ideology, so that’s where I got the title,” Marling said of the song’s origins in a statement. Lindsay added, “I spent hours trying to find a bassline that would work. It was a real headache. Then when I got it, I just loved it and I made my girlfriend come downstairs and dance in the room for about an hour.”
Animal, which follows the duo’s self-titled 2018 debut, is out July 30 via Partisan/Chrysalis. Previously, LUMP shared the album’s title track.
