Tunng Songs You Make at Night Colored Vinyl LP
Some musical partnerships are so strong, intuitive and natural that they almost can't be separated due to the natural magnetism present in the relationship. One such tight knit songwriting family are Tunng, and their new album Songs You Make At Night reunites founding members Sam Genders and Mike Lindsay (fresh from his LUMP side project with Laura Marling) and the rest of the Tunng gang for the first time since 2007's Good Arrows. "We really wanted to do a Tunng record going back to the original line up," Lindsay says. "there was a real magic in the early records that we all wanted to capture again in this one."
Since forming in 2003 and over the course of five albums, Tunng has 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. Songs You Make At Night finds a group reconnecting with a previous collective state to bring out something new and forward-looking. Songs You Make At Night is also Tunng's most electronic-leaning to date. Take lead single "ABOP" which brings the Moog right to your face, with a heavily swung frazzled 808 pigeon beat that builds into a magical folk pop feast.
The LP's tone, theme, lyrics, mood and characters exist in a fluctuating state between night and day ("I got very much into the idea of a dark underwater world suffused with pockets of light and beauty and some of the songs grew out of that," says Genders), the conscious and unconscious. Crepuscular in its nature, Lindsay explains the all-encompassing title. "I think it's also important to stress the songs you make at night not, we make at night. Then the word "songs" can mean a multitude of things. It can mean songs, or dreams, pillow talk or actions and decisions, moves, and can be very personal...the thoughts that keep you awake at night."
