Francis Lung – “Selfish Man”

francis lung 1

 

Ex WU LYF bassist Tom McClung, who’s remained busy with side projects since parting ways with his “heavy pop” band mates in 2012, is in the process of creating a solo identity for himself – now recording under the name Francis Lung.  His first official single, “Selfish Man,” finds Francis diving into familiar avant pop sounds found in his previous projects, but with his new project hear him adding a new, delightful gloss that is as playful as it is intelligent.  What really stands out in the song is what seems to be some introspective lyrics revolving around the WU LYF’s break up:

“when everything becomes too much/ you have to leave/ abandoning was not the plan/ but I don’t wanna know you/ or wanna understand/ I can let you go/ cause I’m a selfish man“.

Check out the new single, “Selfish Man”, which will be officially released as a 7 inch single on January 16th via Atelier Ciseaux Records.
