VENUS VINYL OF THE MONTH - DECEMBER 2022
"White Lung are back! This winter brings their fifth and final, chaotic, bold and hook-driven album, ‘Premonition’. It’s a whirlwind of driving drums, intricate guitar work, and no-holds- barred lyrics about motherhood, pregnancy, and growth. The themes are deeper. The interplay between guitarist Kenneth William and drummer Anne-Marie Vassiliou is more complex, the sound more cohesive. During an unintentional five year hiatus, White Lung managed to grow up without settling down, and the trio has emerged out of its transformative period with raw, feral energy. When the members convened in their hometown of Vancouver in 2017 to begin work with long-time producer Jesse Gander on their fifth album, they had no idea what kind of changes were in store for them. Frontwoman Mish Barber-Way was in the studio preparing to record vocals - when she realized she was pregnant with her first child. A pandemic followed, then another baby, then the series of massive societal meltdowns that we’ve all come to call “everything that’s been going on.” ‘Premonition’ is about birth and rebirth. It’s about leaving behind nihilism while refusing to give up the freedom that it offers. It’s about raging against the world while still finding space within it for hope and love."
