White Lung released their third studio album, Deep Fantasy, on 16 June 2014 through Domino Recording Company. It resulted in increased exposure and the band began to play larger venues.[13] In 2015, the band announced that Lindsey Troy of Deap Vally had joined as a touring bass-player.[14]

The band's fourth album, Paradise, was released on May 6, 2016.[13] In contrast to previous records, the album had "more story-centric songs while Barber-Way find that live the older songs "have taken on a new meaning when I'm onstage. I conjure up a new kind of anger".[13]
