Tunabunny - Power Breaks

Athen, Georgia heroes return with colourful clip...

Hailing from that esteemed corner of humanity known as Athens, Georgia, Tunabunny are now onto their fourth album.

Mull that over for a second. In this time of music industry crisis, a band as bizarre, surreal, colourful and wonderfully different as Tunabunny have mustered up the pennies to record not one but FOUR studio albums - and they haven't starved in the process.

Truly, this is a joyous time to be alive. New full length 'Kingdom Technology' hit record shelves back in April, and predictably it was a tumbling torrent of musical ideas which gleefully thumbed their nose at convention.

For once, here was a DIY group who realised that DIY didn't mean sounding as if being on SST was still a big deal. Stripped from said LP, 'Power Breaks' is both wilfully dissonant and utterly sweet.

The percussive tick sitting underneath is almost Industrial sounding, a funky tick composed of rusting machinery. Amidst clanging guitars the hypnotic vocals seem to sarcastically pick apart the hedonist ideal - but manage to somehow party harder than ever before through sheer cold clarity.

The video for 'Power Breaks' features two girls having a tea party, before things take a turn for the surreal.

Watch it now.
