This time last year, Indie Dunes were testing the waters of the vast
indie blog ocean, trying to find our way through the how's and the whys,
gingerly navigating between the long established (and grumpy) indie dinosaurs
and the fellow indie blog tadpoles with a "the band I found is better than
the band you found" attitude.
The first band that contacted us with a request for a feature were the
LUNGS. We were stunned, speechless and didn't really know whether to run and
hide or scream all girly, but after a few silent ohemgees we experienced the
first rush of one being allowed behind the scenes of an artist's creative process
and for the duration of a brief email exchange, part of their journey.
This time last year LUNGS were unsigned, a few demos graced their SoundCloud
page, with a daily dose of Suzy's photographs posted on Twitter

HERO Records - an Edinburgh/Birmingham record label have just
released LUNGS's second single 'Not Mine' b/w 'Hold Me' a couple of days ago, following
the release of the first single 'Faraway' b/w 'Loner' last July.
LUNGS are planning to release their debut album in Spring 2014, and
judging from the singles we've heard so far, it's going to be a deeply
personal, dream-pop confession.
We are watching from the sidelines, proudly hosting the only public
version of the first song LUNGS wrote together - Calling My Name
