"A make believe world..."

Tunng are streaming their sweet, melodic new single 'The Village'.

Tunng aren't known for making pop music. Folktronic epics which mix the Middle Ages with the cutting edge, maybe, but pop music? Nah...

However the band's new single is sweet, melodic... pop, even. 'The Village' is a compact piece of otherworldly sweetness, which mixes imagination with desire in a typically inventive way.

"A make believe world, where you can't get away from the strange characters you encounter", is the way Tunng founder Mike Lindsay describes the single. "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."

Stream 'The Village' below.
