TUNS is a Canadian indie rock “supergroup” that features Matt Murphy (Super Friendz/Flashing Lights), Mike O’Neill (Inbreds), and Chris Murphy (Sloan). TUNS serves up a synthesis of easy listening and cherubic riffs that are sure to swindle any audience away into a most dreamy la la land. With a full-length album to their name, TUNS is proving that they’re not a supergroup that sounds amazing on paper and lame on your speakers. Nor are they a bunch of old dudes past their peak, or a side project where Chris dumps his Sloan leftovers. Rather, they are a band of equals, of collaborators, of experienced veterans who sound as exuberant as ever. And really, could we expect anything less from a group who played their very first show at Toronto’s Massey Hall?
