Since forming in 2003 and over the course of six studio albums, Tunng are a group that have explored the boundaries between acoustic and electronic music, becoming synonymous with the folktronica genre before moving into territory that managed to both evade that label and continue to redefine it. This is a collection of rare gems and oddities released from 2004 to 2018. These are the 7”s, special editions, b-sides and hidden tracks that would otherwise be lost in the ether. Here they are sitting side by side like a wonky gang, leaning in to share their strange tales.
Track Heatwave has only previously been available on a limited edition 7” included in the deluxe version of Tunng’s 2018 album 'Songs You Make at Night'. Heatwave was written on a hot and sticky morning by Sam Genders and Mike Lindsay during the 'Songs You Make at Night' sessions, and accurately conveys many people’s summer wishes across a low-slung electronic thump, a lackadaisical, wobbly synth bass line and gang vocals for that infectious chorus. Surely a song of the summer? Finger’s crossed for a Heatwave!
Available as 2CD in a gatefold sleeve and on 2LP Clear vinyl
