TUNS (members of Sloan, Super Friendz & Inbreds) ready debut LP, share 1st single, opening for Islands in Brooklyn


Canadian indie rock supergroup TUNSChris Murphy of Sloan, Mike O’Neill of The Inbreds and Matt Murphy of Super Friendz, all three vets of the ’90s Halifax scene — have just wrapped up work on their self-titled debut album which will be out August 26 via Royal Mountain Records. There’s a lot of talent among these three and Matt Murphy told Stereogum, “We’re fans of each other’s music. Which is a cliché, but it’s amazing to hear someone you respect create something you think is magical right before your eyes. There are a lot of moments when I think, ‘It’s really exciting just to be in this room right now.’”

TUNS, who took their name from Technical University of Nova Scotia (now called Dal Tech), have just shared the official first single, a glammy, very catchy powerpop stomper titled “Mind Over Matter.” To my ears, Matt Murphy is singing lead on this one and you can stream it below.

Folks in NYC can catch TUNS opening for Islands this Saturday (May 21) at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Lushlife are on the bill as well, and tickets are still available.

TUNS will also play NXNE in Toronto in June.
