Formed during the early days of summer 2017, Bristol punk/noise rock band Heavy Lungs can’t help but feel like a product of their environment. “Living here, it’s hard not to see the scars the city can leave. Like burning your bare leg skin on the exhaust of a motorbike—inconvenient and painful, but not without its equal share of humour and self reflection.”
Quickly writing and recording an ep and playing their first show within months of forming, Heavy Lungs have been a band hungry from the off. Honing their craft and strengthening their bond as a unit, the quartet have gone from strength to strength, even through a global pandemic.
If you’re wondering what being a part of their particular gang is like, they describe it as “something similar to dating three people at the same time. Daunting, exhausting, but not without some very serious privileges. We share a lot of mutual friends, interests, hates, postcodes, dietary restrictions, debts, UBERs, dreams, nightmares, vices and daddy issues.”
