DUBBING a band "experimental" is usually not especially complimentary.
However, it is a label that Tunng appear to be quite comfortable with, if their latest record Good Arrows is anything to go by.
Moving away from their folk-tronica roots, Good Arrows is a quirky pop album that has more in common with The Flaming Lips or Australian samplers' The Avalanches than anything you'll hear at your local folk club.
Unusual instruments such as a steel-strung harp and a hammer are backed by samples recorded by the band on their trusty tape recorder.

While the results aren't always pleasing on the ear, songs such as Bullets, Soup, and Arms all show promise.
Tunng should be commended for producing an original and imaginative album, but they may need to refine their style somewhat if they are to find mainstream success.
