Francis Lung is a Manchester-based singer-songwriter and musician, better known for this work with band as WU LYF and Los Porcos. Now he announced the release of his first full-length. A Dream Is U is out via Memphis Industries on August 2nd. We already shared “2 Real”; “Up & Down” is a new excerpt. Watch the official video below.
On the track and the video, Lung explains, “The song is a bipolar love story – two lovers with manic mood swings, the narrator speaks in an accusing tone, berating his lover for their erratic behaviour, in denial and unaware that they are just as difficult. The quietness of the vocal delivery in the verses and dramatic, loud delivery of the choruses is meant to represent a mood swing from depressed to euphoric and back again.
The video was directed by Mancunian filmmakers GRANDMAS. It follows a young woman after she murders an anonymous man in a hotel room. We tag along with her through her self-destructive path to oblivion as she wanders the streets at night, drinking copious amounts of tonic wine. She happens upon a northern karaoke bar where she sings her swan song as police sirens sound in the distance”
