Lucy Kruger & The Lost Boys Plunge into a Cathartic Chasm of Primal Screams with “Howl”

In the shadows where dreams and desires intertwine, Lucy Kruger & The Lost Boys reveal “Howl”—a mesmerizing single that whispers its secrets pulled from the forthcoming Heaving album, set to emerge from the twilight on April 7th through Unique Records and The Orchard. “Howl” is a tempest of intensity that weaves a tapestry of defiance and devastation, with the enchantment of art pop ambient noise threaded throughout.

We hear the ethereal experimental sounds of Delia Derbyshire reverberating through the captivating introduction, but the raw and visceral energy of PJ Harvey, Hole, and Garbage soon crash the party, plunging into a chasm of primal screams. This is the anthem of the shadow self, boldly asserting her presence; a Lilith who demands to be heard. “Howl” is avant-garde in the most magnificent sense – it exposes the deepest vulnerability of being human, with all its intense, bloody splendour, and presents these emotions on a tarnished silver platter of scattered vocals. “Howl” gracefully slips from whimsy to brutal confessions, invoking catharsis through power chords. Beyond the mere formation of words, the voice becomes a primal, otherworldly form of expression.

Lucy Kruger muses on her artistic odyssey and the anticipation of the looming tour: “I spent the last three albums quietly singing about how I wanted to make a noise and, on this song, I’ve finally managed to do just that—which means, when we go on tour, I’ll have to make more noise, which is a lovely trap to have set for myself. I’m looking forward to seeing how it all goes, and how it all feels.”
