Tuung is back with the whole OG lineup for the first time in over a decade, and it looks like they’re right back in the proverbial groove. Their latest single recalls late nights on dance floors in the early 00s; it’s got a rhythmic pulse working throughout, filled out by various electronic details. What makes the song so fun is the vocal harmonies that work in and out of the tune; it gives you the feeling of exuberance that can only be shared by pumping fists and stomping legs amongst friends in a dingy club somewhere. The group will release Songs You Make at Night via Full Time Hobby on August 24th.
It’s really hard to classify Earring, and I should probably steer clear of trying in the first place. That being said, those of you who find yourselves interested in droning noise and shoegaze will likely find your ears pleased. The band have crafted a dark wall of sound, and within that wall, deep coated vocals drift atop the mix. There’s a great deal of restraint shown by the band too, pulling back throughout the track in order to maximize the emotional appeal within the song. This song appears on the band’s new Tunn Star LP, which is being released on June 10th via Fire Talk.
