10/28: Little Red Lung

Los Angeles’ Little Red Lung began in 2007 as a solo project of singer/keyboardist Zoe-Ruth Erwin, and was immediately seeded as a dramatic, dynamic, and genre-defying musical exhibition, performing in small avant-indie venues across the city. The following year, after an extensive eastern U.S. tour, she took an extended sabbatical to the foothills of East Tennessee, stirring the production pot that would eventually form the roots of their debut record. In the Fall of 2010, Zoe returned to L.A. to form a complete band, and quickly enlisted three creative veterans of the local indie music scene, Ali Nikou (guitar), Rob Hume (bass), and Nathan Kondor (drums). With the inspired new lineup, Little Red Lung got right to work, and on March 20, 2012 their eagerly anticipated, 6-song, self-titled debut was released. Within a month of introducing the album, Little Red Lung had graced the cover of Indie Music Reviewer Magazine, had the highest rated new album in April’s issue of Music Connection Magazine, and were nominated for LA Artist of the Month by The Deli Magazine. Two months later, they completed a successful western U.S. tour, and premiered a hauntingly beautiful, visually spectacular, music video for their single “50 Fingers”, directed by acclaimed artist Sarah Sitkin, who was also responsible for their EP’s stunning album cover art. Most recently, a District 78 remix of their song “Fangs” was featured in the finale of FOX’s hit show “So You Think You Can Dance,” and subsequently placed them in the top 25 on the iTunes download charts. The album, Little Red Lung, is available digitally through iTunes, Amazon, and Bandcamp (www.littleredlung.bandcamp.com), or through their official website (www.littleredlung.com). The dramatic video for “50 Fingers”, directed by Sarah Sitkin, can be found on both Vimeo and YouTube. In September 2012, Little red Lung announced dates for a southern U.S. tour, launching in Tucson, AZ on October 19.
