Animal was recorded at Lindsay’s home studio in Margate, Kent. As with the first album, Marling would arrive in the studio without having heard any of Lindsay’s music. “There’s a little bit of a theme of hedonism on the album, of desires running wild,” she says. “And also it fed into the idea we had from the start of thinking of Lump as a kind of representation of instincts, and the world turned upside down.”

“We created Lump as a sort of persona and an idea and a creature,” adds Lindsay. “Through Lump we find our inner animal, and through that animal we travel into a parallel universe.”
