Lung Shaped Heart


Band to Join.


Lonely party of one seeks backing band for fun times and worldwide domination.

My names Dresden, founding member of Lung Shaped Heart.

I've found myself in an unusual predicament. I currently have a writing partner, who can play piano, guitar and bass. Combined with my dab hand for drum programing, we've managed to put together an EP's worth of material. So I have the music but not the band. This is where you hopefully come in.

I'm looking to take things to the next level, get more live experience and try and get this EP the attention it deserves. I'm ideally looking for a drummer, guitarist (lead and rhythm), keyboardist and bassist, just to start things off. Our music is quite cinematic, so I'm also very open to all orchestral instruments getting in on the party! But for now, the immediate need is a basic band.

I like to write lyrics using a lot of metaphor, including but not limited to, organ’s, bones, nature, insides, war, and glittering things.

I've been told, repeatedly, by multiple people (not just my Mum!!) that I sound like, Bowie, Brian Molko, Anthony & The Johnsons and Rufus Wainwright. All of which are huge compliments, though I find it hard to hear myself. I think I just sound like me.

I'm a friendly 26 year old, of the homosexual variety, (with the usual and functioning eyes, nose and face) who is heavily tattooed, maybe a little bit arty and has a tendency to be drawn to all things black and glittery.

I have quite a definite idea of image and I’ve slowly been working on designing the Lung Shaped Heart aesthetic over the last year. You can take a look at the website, should you feel so inclined at www.lungshapedheart. Currently, there’s only one example of the music I’ve been working towards on the site, but I have a few more tracks available to be emailed if you’re at all interested.

I’ll happily consider anyone and everyone who’s interested. If any of this appeals to you, by all means, please get in touch asap.
