LUMP, a collaboration between Laura Marling and Mike Lindsay of Tunng, have shared the video for new single, ‘Paradise’. It is lifted from their recently-released second album, Animal, out now via Chrysalis / Partisan Records.

Watch the video for “Paradise”, directed and animated by Laura, below…

Laura Marling states: “The day I wrote Paradise, I’d been reading lots about Lacan, this French psychoanalyst who is very difficult to grasp, and I had a dream that I saw him on a bus and he offered me a cucumber sandwich and it was deeply, deeply erotic for no obvious reason, and I thought that’s too good! It’s perfect psychoanalytic nonsense. Lacan talks all about the discourse of the master and the idea that we all have this impulse to project this idea that somebody has the answer, somebody knows. And of course he had become that in my mind, because he’s so ungraspable that he became an erotic master on a bus…So there we go. And the guitar solo in that one’s amazing.”

LUMP is currently out on a short UK headline tour which culminates in a night at The Scala in London on the 6th September.

2nd September – Brudenell Social Club, Leeds
3rd September – Trinity, Bristol
5th September – Patterns, Brighton
6th September – Scala, London
