Tunng

Good Arrows (Full Time Hobby)

By Andy Gill

On this third album, Tunng push the folk-rock envelope into more eclectic areas, expanding their instrumental palette to incorporate woodwind, steel-string harp and hammer dulcimer alongside their usual guitars, banjos, beats and glockenspiels, and broadening their lyrical scope to reference TV inquisitor Jeremy Kyle and the interior monologue of a surgeon coming to terms with fatal failure.

Arms employs a rhythm track created from crackling fire noise, an aptly evocative idea for an album that can resemble a Blair Witch campfire sing-song.
