Watch the brilliant new video from Irish dream-indie-pop band Land Lovers with Crowd of Lungs taken from their new album The Rooks Have Returned.
Land Lovers are at their bittersweet best in ‘Crowd of Lungs’. The song races along, with a sugary melody punctuated by sudden declarations, before finding its way into an even more urgent bridge –reminiscent of late ‘70s Elvis Costello & the Attractions – and finally a yawning half-paced coda of arpeggios and regret.
Founding members and key contributors to the Popical Island collective in Ireland (Paddy Hanna, Tieranniesaur, Squarehead, Ginnels, No Monster Club, etc.), Land Lovers are central to the ever-growing Dublin guitar pop scene in recent years. The band have also toured with and opened for the likes of Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks, Yuck, The Mantles, Nodzzz, Ham Sandwich and The Wave Pictures.
