tunng-final-front-smallThis was the first Tunng track I heard (on BBC Radio 3’s Late Junction), and it prompted me to buy the album And Then We Saw Land, which turned out to be inventive throughout. “October” is representative, an original song that sounds traditional with its contrasting vocal duo singing in octaves (by Mike Lindsay and Becky Jacobs), with whispering, breathing and silence contributing greatly to the atmosphere, unexpected electronic music interludes, quirky instrumentation and cross rhythm accompanying figures on guitar, keyboards and backing vocals. The latest album, Turbines, has also had good reviews.
