Last week, Little Red Lung helped headliners Seasons close out their January Monday night residency at The Echo. We've been meaning to catch Little Red Lung for quite some time, and have been listening to their music as of late (available to stream or download here), so we were happy to see them share a bill with one of our favorites. Little Red Lung is fronted by photographer and musician Zoe Ruth-Erwin, who has worked with bands we have featured before such as Death to Anders and One Trick Pony.
Little Red Lung has been described as "a seductive witchery of waltzes that would incite even the most devout crossbearer to do the devil dance" (La-Underground), which is high praise indeed. Buzzbands LA has also described them as an "inviting hybrid of chamber-pop and folktronica as well. We would also like to add that we did find their sound in this set quite eternal and melodically bewitching, which should be evident to the listener.
Little Red Lung's debut E.P. will be released in late March. In the meantime, locally they are performing at Home Room February 10th, and for our readers in Northern California, they will be embarking on a mini-tour in the region next month (March 10th in Merced at The Partisan, March 11th in San Francisco at The Hotel Utah Saloon, March 13th in San Francisco at the Brick & Mortar Music Hall, and March 14th in Oakland at The New Parish)
