Imagine Pink Floyd at the end of the seventies - and that they had David Bowie flown in from Berlin: A song like "Live To Work To Live" could pass as a result of such a fictional encounter. Despite these associations, Tune sound absolutely independent. On other songs of the band's second album from Lodz, Poland, these influences become less obvious. The guys don't translate their song ideas into longtracks, because their strength is to make their songs round with and in four to five minutes. Thus the whole album seems atmospherically dense. But the biggest pound of the band is the haunting and passionate voice of Jakub Krupski, who takes us on an emotional roller coaster with every song. Further highlights are provided by guitarist Adam Hajzer, whose playing offers a wide range of sounds from metal riffs to indie alternative rock suspects. That reminds me of her compatriots from Riverside. But in all comparisons, Tune have created their very own identity.
