Naked Lungs have shared a new single, ‘River (Down)’.

It’s the latest track from the Irish four-piece’s upcoming debut album ‘Doomscroll, set for release on 18th August accompanied by their first headline UK tour.

Speaking about the track, the band say: “River (Down) is us crafting this auditory assault of distortion and drums against a despondent scream into the proverbial nothingness as you spiral deeper and deeper down into a well of self-pity. There’s a definite angst the song that is offset against these abrupt moments of reprieve – building of massive tension only to grant no release, leaving the listener on edge for the whole runtime. This was one of the earliest songs we wrote on “Doomscroll” and it highlights some of the elements and styles we discovered and adopted during the formation of what would eventually become Naked Lungs.”
