Bristol newcomers NUNS OF THE TUNDRA peel back rock to its bare bones and customise it with the use of nifty electro beats and enriching desert rock riffery. The alternative foursome have just released their enthralling new single, Pray 4 U, Slay 4 U – https://youtu.be/MpQFLzM3e84 .
The hotly-tipped quartet take musical inspiration from the pummeling stoner rock riffs of Queens of the Stone Age and the hooky pop psychedelia melodicism of Tame Impala, underpinned with a rhythm section that moves through swampy Bonham-esque grooves. While the NUNS OF THE TUNDRA wade in the waters tread by Homme and Parker, when you hear the band, you’ll be utterly captivated by the alt-rockers’ originality and infectious appeal.
Having opened the main stage at this year’s Lakefest 2018, and building on the success of their previous self-releases, the Nuns have been hard at work recording new material at Giant Wafer Studios in Wales with producers Alex Loring & Tom Andrews (Big Spring, Fangclub), and legendary mastering engineer John Davis (Led Zeppelin, Arctic Monkeys).
