Mish Way on “In Your Home”: “This video was created by Justin Gradin and Ben Jacques. Justin has done all our album art since our first LP so “In Your Home” is funny, demented and uncomfortable, it’s perfect. The star of the video is my dear friend Christina Kenton who pushes the baby cart and smiles at the end. She’s an incredible artist herself. This video is filled with people way more talented than the four of us.”

White Lung’s third and critically acclaimed album, Deep Fantasy, proves them to be every bit as confrontational as before, but it appears that Vancouver’s hard hitting rock n’ roll outfit have opened their sound up just enough to draw listeners in before kicking them in the face. (In a good way.) In the studio, White Lung slimmed to a trio; vocalist Mish Way, drummer Anne-Marie Vassiliou and guitarist Kenneth William. Deep Fantasy was made primarily in Vancouver with producer Jesse Gander (who also did both Sorry and their 2010 debut It’s the Evil) in just two, ten day-long sessions at the end of last year and the start of this one. William handled bass duties on Fantasy while Wax Idols’ Hether Fortune will take up bass and backing vocal duties on tour for the foreseeable future
Way is more provocative and melodic than ever on Fantasy, lyrically surveying addiction (“Drown With the Monster“), body dysmorphia (“Snake Jaw“) and sexual dynamics (“Down It Goes,”) amongst other dinner table topics. William, a devotee of Johnny Marr “plays with the speed of an 80s hardcore dude” whirled in Vassiliou’s relentless and seemingly effortless approach to drumming.
