EP review: THIRD LUNG – Dialogues Of The Fatal Few

Third Lung

Facebook [Release date 26.11.21]

We enjoyed Reading four piece Third Lung’s 2019 EP ‘Sooner Or Later’ here at Ritchie towers and I was delighted to read they have a new EP out. The EP is a compilation of singles, plus some bonus material, that the band has released this year.

Third Lung still have the same line-up, namely Tom Farrelly (vocals, guitars), Cams Jurasek (guitars, vocals), Rob Jacques (bass) and Sam Waugh (drums).

Third Lung musically cover the epic feel of say U2 and the sparser tones of the equally excellent Little Red Kings. They have the crossover appeal to aging music fans like me and a younger crowd who will love the band’s intensity and passionate performances. ‘Hold The Line’ is a perfect example with a massive chorus, rousing guitar chords and big production values. ‘I am Fire’ is another big chorus filled anthem.

It is not all big and bold bombast with ‘The Art of Stealing’ brining things down in tempo. This is the tune that reminds me specifically of Little Red Kings, especially in the passionate, soulful vocal.

‘Climb’ is another belter, one that is made for playing live and just listen to those vocal harmonies on the chorus, brilliant! ‘What Is A Life?’ starts of slowly building into a neat crescendo halfway through before the tempo drops again. Like U2 when they were good ;-)

Hot damn this band are good! They have managed a few live shows in this somewhat restricted year and here’s hoping they land a support slot or two, and festival appearances next year. Until then we can enjoy this excellent EP. ****
