“Seemingly irrelevant refrains are tossed in to the material, yet that very lack of structure makes for the strength of the band. The tracks are delivered with an infectious energy and enthusiasm that has the listener firmly engrossed wanting to find out in which direction in which Virgin Lung will throw the mind next, it will be interesting to hear how the band develop over the future. I can imagine them being an instant hit as SxSW.” - Indie Bands Blog

“Some very mathy post-rock from North Carolina. The first track on the EP has a different sound than the rest (more soft and pop-like), so do make sure to keep listening even if that's song isn't your jam. As the EP carries on it gets fast and a bit harder. A pretty good beginning of something..” - spacerockmountain

“The band crafts songs that are mostly instrumental and whose vocals cheer or bellow. Together they’ve made music that heartily eschews the verse-chorus-verse construction and built songs based on multiple ideas coming together. It’s not cohesion of singular riffs but a marriage of music that resembles a rich tapestry of emotions, albeit cohesion that absolutely rocks.” - Star News

“Epic” is a phrase thrown at a lot of math and post-rock, but rarely delivered on in an urgent fashion. Wilmington’s Virgin Lung open their debut with a track that backs up its grand ideas and sets an ambitiously kinetic tone. “Emergence At Dawn” features multiple guitar lines twisting around each other to create a layered knot of melody for the immense rolling beat to hurl forward. When the gang-vocals kick in — “If you need some help/Send up a flare” — you can’t help but think of the cathartic choruses of posi-poppers Yardwork, only with urgency rather than brotherhood at the fore. But the five songs here pick up steam throughout, the band deftly skirting metal (see “Black Cross Blue Shield”) and prog (“Marathon”) tropes by hammering classic guitar lines into sharp, angular corners, and realizing that fast-and-furious can be as emotional, melodic and cathartic as the usual slow swell-and-release." - Shuffle Magazine
