CRITIC REVIEWS

Uncut

This is loaded with bouncing beats and sparkling melodies, resulting in the kind of idiosyncratic electronic pop you may get if you threw Pet Shop Boys and Wild Beasts into a studio.

God Is in the TV

Simply a stunning record. This band gets better and better.

Mojo

Vanities artily refines an exhilarating brand of up-front electro-dance.

Northern Transmissions

‘Vanities’ represents a melancholic celebration of life, where joy, sadness and anxiety are linked by symbioses. You might say it’s a true depiction of what it is to be human in 2021 – warts and all.

Gigwise

W.H. Lung have gifted us a record full of sonic bliss taken from a variety of era-bending influences that make something truly unique.

Loud and Quiet

Their latest offering lives up to the excesses and indulgences insinuated by its title. A dexterous record.

Well... guess I was tricked by the cute artwork. This ain't giving me nothing at all, just bland and generic "indie rock" sort of mixed with a lot of plagiarism from 2010's bands. Also the tracks feel tired from the moment you start listening to them, that's not good news at all, still it might be ok for a lot of folks, just not for me.

The album cover is cute, but unfortunately the album not so much. This album, i didn't really connect much with it, I feel like there are some good songs but the production on the other remaining ones is somewhat generic and more than songs, sometimes I feel like the band just put noises in the songs to experiment a bit, but at the end of the day I don't find an enjoyment in the album.

Favorite tracks: Calm Down, Gd Tym, ARPi, Showstopper.

Least favorite: Somebody Like.
