Tunng Announce New Single 'The Village' Plus Full UK Autumn 2013 Tour Announced

'The Village' is the brilliant, billowing new single from Tunng - from their forthcoming, fifth album, Turbines - the groups poppiest outing to date.

The song is set in an imaginary place, "a make believe world, where you can't get away from the strange characters you encounter," says founding member Mike Lindsay. "It's about the feeling that you're the only sane person in an unstable situation. The village could be a place, but also a party, a job or a whole country."

Bands as individual and enduring as Tunng don't come around too often. Across their decade together, the group have gone from newcomers, experimenting in the basement of a Soho's women's clothing boutique, to acclaimed sonic masters, expertly threading electronic influences with unhinged, off-piste pop.

A warm, sophisticated record, 'Turbines', is moving, addictive and impossible to categorise with its eclectic range of instrumentation and ideas combining to make something as unique as you're likely to discover this year, or any year. It's also a more nuanced, reflective and mature album which has uncovered a new power in the Tunng sound, already winning a well-deserved wider audience.

"The best thing about working with this band is that we can throw all the ingredients in, give it a good shake, and see where it lands," says electronics wizard Phil Winter.

"It's our sci-fi folk rock album," says Lindsay, with a nod to the whirring cosmonaut synths that flicker in and out of the new single. "It's been an adventure that has taken us all over the world. An amazing journey"

That trip is set to continue as European dates are announced and a full UK tour in October with label mates and fellow sonic explorers Pinkunoizu coming along for the ride. Before that though, they have two intimate and sold out London shows in July.
