Synopsis

Product Description
Tunng: always different, always the same. Tunng's new album, ...And Then We Saw Land, is a record that is dramatically different to any of their previous three, but still very much the same. It's got a new lyricist and a new lead vocalist. It's got drums. It's got synthesizers. It's got massed sing-a-long choruses. It's got guitar solos. And rather noticeably it hasn't got singer, songwriter and Tunng founder Sam Genders (whose other project The Accidental released There Were Wolves in 2008). And yet, and yet... this is the exact same group of people who took the stage for Tunng's first ever show. Very different, but very much the same. The intimacy and domesticity of previous songs is replaced by a grand sweep, a feeling of a wide world being explored and alien experiences being processed and drawn into the band's lives. And yet it's still Tunng, still with that bucolic oddness and modernist gleam that made those very first basement recordings so intriguing seven long, strange years ago. They were different then, and they remain very different now; still different, but still the same. That's Tunng. CD version comes packaged in a luxurious 6 panel mini-LP style package with large fold-out poster insert.
