“…burns with a sharper melody…yet bristles with discontent as it seems to address Wu Lyf’s tumultuous band dynamics with the lyrics” – Dazed Digital
Francis Lung unveils his brilliant new single, “A Selfish Man,” an ambling slice of sophisticated pop that explores the more difficult side of human nature with a nod to his former band’s break up. As his first proper release, Francis Lung partnered with the always on point French label Atelier Ciseaux for A Selfish Man 7″ which includes the Mazzy Star infused b-side “Tsunami Blues (Cause of Me)” due out 1/16.

Francis Lung is the moniker of Manchester resident and former bassist of the ever enigmatic WU LYF, Tom McClung. Late last year Francis Lung revealed the first taste of the project with the sublime “Age Limits” stream and accompanying video. Although currently still in progress, his debut collection of music under the working title Faeher’s Son was written over a 3 year period spanning before, during and after the experience in WU LYF, the collection of Francis Lung material bares witness to a fair amount of turbulence and reflection. A true a solo effort, McClung plays every instrument on the tracks and self-records from his home.
