LUUNG
Sunshine Coast QLD
Alternative synth-pop

Sunshine Coast-based musician 21 year old Bailey Jeffs, who operates under the stage name LUUNG, anticipates the release of the second single from his sophomore Ep ‘For When I Find The Words’.

Jeffs was confronted with the concept for ‘Fallout’ when he had on multiple occasions heard close friends discuss how they had “a fallout” with someone. Jeffs was frustrated with the idea that people were giving up on relationships so easily. “Relationships require work and don’t come easy. They often just require you to ask more questions.”

This most recent body of work was never intended to be an Ep, however part way through 2019 he realised that his accumulation of mumblings and random demos actually presented a coherent selection of work. Jeffs lists artists such as The Japanese House, Nick Murphy, Andrew Belle, Noah Gunderson, The Paper Kites and LANY, as his inspirations.

The production of LUUNG still remains entirely in Jeffs makeshift home studio. However he acknowledges how much he has grown as a producer and artist – and he hopes for “that to translate as people listen to this new body of work.” Jeffs enlisted the help of Chris Collins (Tyne-James Organ, Charlie Collins, Last Dinosaurs) to mix this project and it “hits!”
