Press Releases Walker Art Center and the Cedar Present London’s Experimental Folk Collective Tunng with Special Guests Sam Prekop and Archer Prewitt of The Sea and Cake

“Pitting finger-picking acoustic guitars against gentle synthesized beats, East London’s Tunng presents an aural collision of past and present … the perfect soundtrack for a lazy post-millennial afternoon in the sunshine.” —Daily Telegraph

This wistful and winning experimental music collective from London bubbles up strangely compelling chamber pop that floats in the shadows of electronica and rustic folk. Beloved and revered for its bucolic oddness and modernist gleam, Tunng’s polyphonic future folk blossoms with enchanting melodies, simmering grooves, and found sound that has propelled the band into “a paradise of exceeded expectations” (Absolute Punk). Tunng performs an exclusive North American concert on Saturday, May 7, at 8 pm in the William and Nadine McGuire Theater. The evening begins with an elegant and ethereal acoustic set by Thrill Jockey recording artists Sam Prekop and Archer Prewitt.
