...And Then We Saw Land
Full Time Hobby
the new album from the twisted pop wonders tunng, is their lightest, most uplifting album yet.
they may have lost a founding member but their sound is fuller than ever. this may well be due to the influence of their recent touring buddies, the malian desert bluesmen tinariwen, who seem to have had an effect on how the band construct their songs. packed with big choruses & joyful tunes, this record has been described by mike’s friend as “epic folk disco brass magnificent” , a description we couldn’t possibly compete with! 3 songs contain what the band describe as “the megga chorus” - a 15-strong group of collaborators & drinking buddies who lent their voices to the album one rainy night in an abandoned school hall. becky jacobs takes centre-stage on much of the album which gives the album quite a different feel to previous records. a consistently fine band. “a revealing, liberating experience that finds them leading the field again” - bbc.
