There is something comforting yet mysteriously unsettling about Tunng. The so-called folktronica sextet have an unnerving knack of leading listeners across a make believe Escher-esque landscape, at the same time nonsensical yet strangely familiar. For their first outing as a fully formed ‘band’, album number three, Good Arrows, sees the collective continue along the sparse acoustic guitar/velvety vocal route but with a marked leaning to electronica

Arrows is warmer and fuller-sounding than anything Tunng's released, relying on isolated, strummed acoustic guitars that feel like they're floating in space as its primary aural component. Lindsay's bric-a-brac is still present, but it's largely subsumed to some of the most fleshed-out songs the band's yet created. Bullets" is followed by "Soup", which follows a chiming, electro-acoustic first half with the first sighting of an electric guitar yet on a Tunng record; the second half rocks out to the same melody. As a result, this one-two punch contrasts sharply with its more dour surroundings, the equivalent to stumbling upon a rural carnival on a sparsely populated countryside.

Their debut album indulged in what you might call Wicker mannerisms - slightly affected intimations of dark goings-on in the bosky dells to which a lot of alternative folkies are prone - but which in Tunng's hands ended up sounding more League of Gentlemen than Lord Summerisle.
