TRACK PREMIERE: Anglo French progressive sludge duo Lark deliver "Too far gone"

“Lark” an informal noun/verb used in the English language refers to an activity regarded as foolish or a waste of time, enjoying oneself by behaving in a playful or mischievous way or something done for fun, especially something mischievous or daring;  an amusing adventure or escape.  Whilst I cannot discern the true meaning of the word in reference to the band name of today’s guests (Lark is also small ground-dwelling songbird), despite what the name suggests, this progressive sludge duo are set to deliver a seriously weighty debut EP, indeed this is serious shit, where dealing with. 

Featuring former members of Bright Curse, their debut self-titled EP is recommended for those who like (Early) Mastodon, Baroness, Opeth, Katatonia.  With the nucleus of the band, formed by two French brothers (Zach and Raph), living in France and England respectively, the two rapidly found ways around the distance between them and started their first creative collaboration at the beginning of 2017.  The result of that their shared a vision is an EP that combines a massive and textured sound with bucket load of groove and that all important sledgehammer riff.

So, with D Day for the release set for Halloween 2017, you can check out an exclusive new track “Too Far Gone” below.  A foolish waste of time, this not.  Press play now, it’ll be a “Lark”
