Laura Marling and Tunng’s Mike Lindsay are set to release their new album as LUMP, Animal, on July 30th via Chrysalis/Partisan Records, and today they’ve shared a video for their new single, “Climb Every Wall.”
With silky vocals from Marling and some dreamy, groovy instrumentals, this track, which follows the release of “Animal,” revolves around an experimental groove and catchy hook. The accompanying video, which was shot and edited by Tamsin Topolski and Mora Larming, comes packed with gritty, choppy clips of Marling and Lindsay in front of a blank white wall, decked out in tulle.
“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 explains.
Watch the video for “Climb Every Wall” below.
I spent hours trying to find a bassline that would work,” Lindsay adds. “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.”
