Lungs They Burn

Lungs They Burn


Lungs They Burn is an eclectic three-piece that has created an experimental sound that won't drain on your attention span. Being influenced by experimental, blues, jazz, hip hop, funk, folk, indie, classic rock, roots, and world music grooves has enabled us to give you a unique, accessible sound.


Lungs They Burn rose out of the proverbial ashes of now defunct Colorado bands to create a unique sound that even your mom will like. Influenced by a wide variety of artists including Sigur Ros, The Knife, Damien Rice, The Black Keys, We Are Scientists, and Portishead, Sean, Pat, and Isaac knew from day one they had a good thing brewing. Practicing late into the musty Greeley night, Lungs They Burn set out to prove that you don't need 20 minute guitar solos or 3 hour set lists to be an experimental group. Through high energy live shows that often include covers of artists ranging from Justin Timberlake to AC/DC to Martin Sexton, Lungs They Burn has been gaining steady recognition throughout Colorado's local scene.
