LUMP share video for 'Paradise', animated by Laura Marling

The track is lifted from the project’s second album, ‘Animal’.

LUMP have shared a new video for their song ‘Paradise’, animated and directed by the band’s Laura Marling.

The track is taken from the duo’s second album ‘Animal’, which came out last month via Partisan/Chrysalis Records.

Speaking of the new video, Marling said: “The day I wrote ‘Paradise’, I’d been reading lots about Lacan, this French psychoanalyst who is very difficult to grasp, and I had a dream that I saw him on a bus and he offered me a cucumber sandwich and it was deeply, deeply erotic for no obvious reason, and I thought that’s too good! It’s perfect psychoanalytic nonsense.

“Lacan talks all about the discourse of the master and the idea that we all have this impulse to project this idea that somebody has the answer, somebody knows. And of course he had become that in my mind, because he’s so ungraspable that he became an erotic master on a bus…So there we go. And the guitar solo in that one’s amazing.”

LUMP are taking the new album out on tour across the UK this week, playing the Brudenell Social Club in Leeds tonight (2nd September), with dates in Bristol, Brighton and London following.

Reviewing the band's new album 'Animal', DIY wrote: "Indulgent by design but illuminated with imagination, it takes a few listens for the LP’s diamonds to truly shine, but when they do, they really shine bright."
