LUMP is Marling’s new project with Tunng’s Mike Lindsay

Laura Marling has teamed up with Mike Lindsay (founding member of Tunng and Throws) for a new project called LUMP. Their self-titled debut album is out June 1 via Dead Oceans. This morning they’ve shared “Curse of the Contemporary”: Watch the animated video, which was created by motion graphics designer Esteban Diacono, below.

In writing for LUMP, Marling was inspired by early 20th century surrealism and the absurdist poets Edward Lear and Ivor Cutler, according to a press release. The singer-songwriter’s most recent release, Semper Femina, arrived last year. Lindsay released Throws’ self-titled debut in 2016, while his last Tunng’s LP, Turbines, came in 2013.
