Tunng

God bless Tunng for making what is otherwise one of the more obnoxious genres of music (Folktronica) so damned delectable. Cutesy love songs called “Sashimi” and a chorus that conjures up ghosts of A-ha past would usually be instantly dismissible. However, what other band can make a plucky banjo intro sound like it’s coming from outer space without a shred of irony? Only this band of strange, English merry men. And to that, we say just the opposite of “folk you.”
