CURRENT: White Lung – “Face Down”

Along with Cloud Nothings, Pussy Riot, Iceage, and a whole slew of other likeminded musicians, White Lung are helping prove that there’s still room for the guitar in today’s musical landscape. The assertive, frenetic “Face Down” is arguably the best song yet from White Lung, as its pummeling instrumental is met with equal intensity by singer Mish Way’s at-times restrained vocal performance. By the end of the song, Way becomes “Down”‘s primary focus, and it feels as though she and her bandmates are on the verge of a major breakthrough.

Deep Fantasy, the third studio album from White Lung, and first through Domino, is out 17 June in the U.S.
