Lunge are the husband-and-wife duo of Archie Bronson Outfit founder Arp and Joe Gideon & The Shark‘s Viva, and they have announced their new EP, EP1 which is set for release on 7 April. In addition Lunge share new single ‘This Idle Motion‘ mixed by Dan Carey. The accompanying video was directed by Simon Owens whose credits include Hot Chip, Alexis Taylor and Caribou.
Arp says of the track:
“Taking a lyrical dip in the eternal river of love; the great river will rock you in her ebb and flow, as you explore a simultaneous freedom and claustrophobia. I wrote them quick-flash one night in bed and in the morning laid them on the piano for Viva to write to and it was complete that day; one of those occasional, golden, easy-birth songs. The man-myth that is Dan Carey mixed this instinctively and with love.”
The debut EP sees an impressive list of collaborators and producers, a tantalising prospect evidencing the talent of the duo. For example previous single ‘Off With Their Heads’ was produced by Dean Horner of All Seeing I who has worked with likes of Pale Blue Eyes and Róisín Murphy. ‘Heavy Golden Swim‘ has a dance-punk energy and was produced by Tim Goldsworthy (DFA, Massive Attack) and mixed by Shuta Shinoda (Spiritualized, Hot Chip). Other creative personnel recruited by the duo include Slowdive‘s Neil Halstead, the rich baritone croon of The Golden Dregs and Sam Windett of Archie Bronson Outfit.
