LUMP Share Video for New Single ‘We Cannot Resist’

    LUMP, the project of Laura Marling and Mike Lindsay, have shared another single from their upcoming album Animal. ‘We Cannot Resist’ arrives alongside an accompanying video featuring an appearance from the titular LUMP creature. Check it out below. 

    “It wants to be this massive pop track, but it’s been twisted,” Lindsay said of ‘We Cannot Resist’ in a press release. “I like that when the chorus comes in you’re like ‘Wow!’ It’s this huge pop chorus, but then it becomes really creepy with the whispered ‘We cannot resist’.” Marling adds, “This is another one about hedonism. But it was tricky because it’s such American imagery. I remember we had to stop and start and redo quite a lot of the lyrical takes because saying things like ‘Down to burn rubber’ are quite awkward to say in an English accent.”

    Animal is set for release on July 30 via Partisan/Chrysalis. LUMP previously shared the single ‘Climb Every Wall’ and the album’s title track
