“Pitting finger-picking acoustic guitars against gentle synthesised beats, East London’s Tunng presents an aural collision of past and present … the perfect soundtrack for a lazy post-millennial afternoon in the sunshine.” —Daily Telegraph
This wistful and winning experimental music collective from London bubbles up strangely compelling chamber pop that floats in the shadows of electronica and rustic folk. Beloved and revered for its bucolic oddness and modernist gleam, Tunng’s polyphonic future folk blossoms with enchanting melodies, simmering grooves, and found sound that has propelled the band into “a paradise of exceeded expectations” (Absolute Punk). Just Added! The evening begins with an elegant and ethereal acoustic set by Thrill Jockey recording artists Sam Prekop and Archer Prewitt. Don’t miss Tunng on this rare U.S. visit.
