The rest of the band is the body. It finally reached 1 in its 28th chart week in January The prosthetic lungs worn by Florence Welch on the album sleeve were designed and made by art-school graduate Orlando Weeks, the singer of the Brighton based indie rock band The Maccabees. You start with rawhide, soak it to get it malleable, then cut it, stitch it and stuff it. That was the first time I had worked with leather. If nothing else it means I got to appear on a 1 album.
We'll have things fixed soon. Aggressive Bittersweet Druggy. Energetic Happy Hypnotic. Romantic Sad Sentimental. Sexy Trippy All Moods. Drinking Hanging Out In Love. Introspection Late Night Partying. Rainy Day Relaxation Road Trip. Romantic Evening Sex All Themes. Lungs is a cloud-headed introduction to Welch's world, where It Girl hype, coffins, violence, and ambition combust on impact; it's a platinum-shellacked demo reel drunk on its own hi-fi-ness.
Welch bursts mouth-wide over garage rock, epic soul, pint-tipping Britbeat, and-- best of all-- a mystic brand of pop that's part Annie Lennox, Grace Slick, and Joanna Newsom. A lesser talent might fall prey to such veering stylistic change-ups cough, Kate Nash, cough , but Welch powers through, her ear-snapping alarm call of a voice making Lungs sound like the work of a courageous artist rather than a group of well-paid producers.
Mackey is seemingly responsible for setting-up Welch's rock'n'roll bona fides, chalking up credits for the faux-shock White Stripes rip off "Kiss With a Fist" and the swinging and sinister "Girl With One Eye", which finds the singer in a gouging mood.
It can sound affected, occasionally crass, but there's enough adventure to make this worth backing for the Mercury. Club felt that "[a]t times, Lungs borders on exhausting, careening as it does from one over-the-top track to the next.
It's the sound of someone who has found their voice and is keen to use it — as loudly and freely as possible. Lungs was shortlisted for the Mercury Prize.
