francis lung • blondes have more fun • 2021




"Francis Lung turns dark emotions into bright and welcoming songs" ****
– MOJO

"Glorious" 8/10
– Uncut

 "This makes hangovers sound heroic"
– The Guardian

"Gorgeously jangling, falsetto-led indie-pop"
– The Times

“Richly detailed second full-length album from Manchester smart-pop luminary” ****
– Shindig


"Blondes Have More Fun" finds the artist fusing glorious, glass-half-full melodies with twinkling piano and heartfelt acoustic guitar. It's another exploration of this new sonic approach for Lung that takes inspiration from the work of Harry Nilsson, Stephin Merritt, Maurice Deebank (Felt), etc, whilst thematically it touches upon Lung's newfound sobriety – a topic pertinent to the new album – and ideas of wanting to escape.
