Canadian Power Pop band - Tuns are back with their second album. I have been aware of them since their debut in 2016 which is full of melodic guitar pop gems. The wonderfully catchy 'To Your Satisfaction' is a particular favourite. The band are actually a supergroup which consists of members of Sloan, The Inbreds and The Superfriendz.
Their new album is more of the same, with plenty of memorable, well-written songs. It opens with 'In The Middle of the Way Home' and the sound, of course, recalls Sloan. It is a hugely enjoyable listen.
'My Memories' is the standout track here. One of those rare songs which instantly sticks with you on first listen. It bought to mind Weezer, back when they were at their best in the 90s.
Other highlights include the lovely, Beatles-inspired 'I'll Only Love You More'. It is unusual as it speeds up at the end and is like two songs in one. 'Double Down' has some great harmonies and is very upbeat and fun. 'Keeping Options Open' is a quirky observation of the world of dating. It ends on 'We're Living in it Now' which is a heartfelt love song of the highest standard.
A superb album full of great melodies and enjoyable pop hooks. Highly recommended.
