Tunng’s new album Songs You Make At Night, out Aug. 24, reunites original members Sam Genders and Mike Lindsay, who founded the English folk band back in 2003. 15 years later, after various solo and side projects (including Lindsay’s recent collaboration with Laura Marling, LUMP), Tunng are back with an album that reflects where they’ve been, and also where they’re going.
Songs You Make At Night features contrasting moods that represent night and day, and utilizes subtle electronic effects. “Crow,” sparse and sparkling, was inspired by themes of grief.
”’Crow’ was inspired in part by Max Porter’s book Grief Is The Thing with Feathers, which I loved,” Sam Genders explains. “In the song, the Crow represents all the good and bad that life has to offer. The love of old friends and the seeming cruelty of fate right there in the mix with everything else, giving us what we need to grow and become who we are.”
Songs You Make At Night is out Aug. 24th on Full Time Hobby Records. Preorder the album right here.
