Artist: Tu Fawning
Album: A Monument
Label: City Slang
It has been two years since Tu Fawning released their debut album Hearts On Hold and this week they are back with the follow-up A Monument.
This is one of the most uniquely sounding albums that I have had the pleasure to listen to so far this year. And while Tu Fawning may be considered a little underrated hopefully all that will change with this delightful collection of tracks.
Anchor is the opening track to the album and there really is a hypnotic feel to the track and there is haunting sound to the beautiful vocals.
Blood Stains shows that the band are more than capable of injecting a bit of rhythm into their music as this has a really infectious and unforgettable beat.
But what makes this album work are the vocals from Corrina Repp and Joe Haege and the interchanging between the pair of them throughout the tracks.
Blood Stains is one of the best tracks on the record as the rumble of tribal drums beat throughout and mixing well with the fantastic vocals.
There is another change of pace and sound with Wanger as the guitars kick to give this track a real dark and quite moody feel.
Build A Great Cliff is perhaps the most atmospheric tracks on the album as there is an eerie feel to the vocals and the instrumentation.
A Monument is a wonderfully diverse album that shows that Tu Fawning are a band who are not afraid to experiment with different sounds.
There is a real avant-garde feel to this record as the band jumps from genre to genre - all this is help together by some truly stunning vocal work.
This is one of the best albums that I have heard to far this year and it is really not to be missed.
