It’s been a minute since we’ve heard from Toronto power-pop outfit Sam Coffey & The Iron Lungs. Back in 2017, they released an exceptional self-titled album on the masses, and now they’re back with a new single and video. It’s a real upbeat, guitar-driven number we can’t seem to get enough of.
“‘Back With The Gang’ is our way of saying ‘WE’RE BACK! AND WE’VE STILL GOT GUITARS.'” Coffey explains. “We got really into junkshop glam while recording this, particularly bands like Laurice, The Equals, Slade, and Sweet. Before taking this to the studio, we tested out at shows at about half speed. We loved the song but the slow pace and high register was burning us and the people at the show out. Enter our great producer Kevin Ratterman to fix the problem! He told us to turn up the BPM and detuned the song to make it feel heavier.”
