watch Possible Humans’ “Lung of the City” video; debut LP out next week
Melbourne’s Possible Humans have been around since 2012, making very catchy, breezy indie rock that has drawn comparisons to neighbors Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever and New Zealand greats The Clean. Favoring live shows to studios, and growing from four members to five, this year Possible Humans finally got around to making their debut album, Everybody Split, which was produced by Alex Macfarlane of The Stevens and Twerps. Released in April in a run of only 200 vinyl copies, Everybody Split sold out immediately and quickly became a collector’s item. Thankfully, the good folks at Trouble in Mind are repressing the album in much less limited quantities and putting it on streaming services on August 2 (order yours).
We’ve got the premiere of the video for one of the hookiest songs on the album, “Lung of the City,” that has a melancholy undercurrent that driven home by the clip’s graveyard setting. “Resenting a home town is lazy and leaving it doesn’t make you cool, however correct,” says the band’s Adam Hewitt of the song. “It’s a relationship worth understanding, because maybe it doesn’t want to see you either.” Watch below.
