Tunng are an experimental folk band from the United Kingdom. They are often associated with the folktronica genre due to the electronic influcences evident in some of their work. Tunng play a mesmerising mix of folky acoustics and busy electronica, overlaying electronic crackles, gorgeous harmonies, bewitching mantras and synthetic beats that are reminiscent of early Beta Band, 'The Wicker Man' soundtrack and Four Tet.

The people behind Tunng are Mike Lindsay and his accomplice Sam Genders. The band released two full-length albums and a number of EPs. Tunng was also featured on some samplers and compilations. The criticaly acclaimed debut Mother's Daughter and Other Songs was released in 2005, followed by the 2006 release Comments of the Inner Chorus.

Tunng are often noted for their use of strange instruments, including sea shells. They supported Doves on dates at the end of their 2005 tour. They have covered Bloc Party's song "The Pioneers". Check it.
