By Tunng

Tunng's first album, 'This is Tunng' was a triumph of electro-folk in a similar, but more accomplished and darker vein to that of The Earlies with whom they worked. Woodcat, the first single from Tunng's second album, Comments on the Inner Chorus, is typical of their style, mixing electronic touches with more conventional contemporary folk. Instrumentally, Woodcat definitely marks a progression from their first album; the sound is more a mature and wholesome one that makes you sit and listen. However, the some of the vocals and the electronic touches let the song down a little. The male vocals are childish and a little bored sounding and never really pick up on the full potential of the enticing arrangements, but the addition of some female vocals in places compliment it nicely. In addition, the electronic touches seem to be more as a compulsory addition and forced extra aspect to the song which would have worked just as well without. Yet, these flaws can be forgiven, it was originally conceived as an instrumental and it is this aspect which excels. Overall, it's still a good, solid single.
