About Tunng

Tunng are a London, England, neo-folk band, formed in 2003. The band consists of Mike Lindsay (vocals, guitar), Becky Jacobs (vocals, percussion, synths), Ashley Bates (banjo, guitar), Phil Winter (electronics, sampling, keyboards), Martin Smith (percussion, keyboards/piano) and Simon Glenister (drums), and co-founder Sam Genders (vocals, guitar), who left the band before the release of “…And Then We Saw Land” but rejoined with 2018’s “Songs You Make At Night”.

Tunng started after Genders and Lindsay met, in the latter’s Soho basement studio (below a clothes shop). Genders was a singer-songwriter and Lindsay had the studio (making electronica and living through advertising music production). They found that Lindsay’s distinctive way with twinkling sounds, and tight production, significantly enhanced the folky songs they were writing – a signature sound developed.

Tunng’s first album was “Mother’s Daughter and Other Songs”. However, since Genders made at first the choice not to play live, Lindsay found Jacobs and Bates to help with live shows. Over time, Winter and Smith became part of the band and have all contributed more to recordings, first on “Comments of the Inner Chorus”, then more so on “Good Arrows”.
