The Lavender Flu
The Lavender Flu
The Lavender Flu is an American indie/psych/alt-rock band, formed by Chris Gunn (2). After his main band The Hunches broke up soon after Exit Dreams release, Gunn moved to San Francisco and pursued solo experiments.

In 2010, Chris Gunn relocated back to Portland, and started working on his new project at Old Standard Sound, the studio where Hunches had recorded 'Exit Dreams.' He invited his brother Lucas, ex-Hunches drummer Ben Spencer, and Scott Simmons from Eat Skull to join him in what eventually became Lavender Flu. Several other musicians joined periodically, including Justin Higgins (2), the Old Standard owner, and former band partners: Hart Gledhill from The Hunches, and Adam Stonehouse of The Hospitals.

In 2016, The Lavender Flu released their debut Heavy Air album, combining songs recorded between 2009–2014, and issued on 2xLP by Scott's label Meds, with CD/digital edition on Holy Mountain.
