Album Review: Copper Lungs – Reverie

Copper Lungs - Reverie
Twin Atlantic fans, get on Copper Lungs immediately – you might just find your favourite band. It’s easy to see why this Dundee quartet have drawn comparisons to Glasgow’s finest – both ply a similar brand of anthemic alt-rock that makes a wonderful use of that distinctive Scottish brogue.

But, as new EP ‘Reverie’ shows, Copper Lungs are more than just mere copies. While largely straight-up rock, they bolster their sound with chiming indie and pop – ‘Fire’ carries a bit of Two Door Cinema Club to it, while the driving ‘Magic’ and the title tracks are slightly reminiscent of Catfish And The Bottlemen.

It’s a great sound for them, and while ‘Reverie’ may only be a meagre three tracks long, it drops some heavy hints of a greatness that Copper Lungs will be in possession of very soon. For such a young band to have found a distinctive sound of their own so early on bodes incredibly well, and that it’s as great as this hardly hurts.

4/5

‘Reverie’ by Copper Lungs is released on 23rd October on Thin Hippo Records.
