Nuns of the tundra
Alternative indie rock from the uk
A prominent part of the ‘Worcester Wave’ movement, DIY alternative rock 4 piece 'Nuns of the Tundra' strip rock down to its undies and redress it in your pot head mate's best leathers.
Taking inspiration from the pummelling stoner rock riffs of QOTSA and the contagious pop psychedelia melodicism of Tame Impala, underpinned with a rhythm section that moves through swampy grooves to flights of sheer technicality, the Nuns quickly gained a renowned reputation for their riotous live performances, leading to BBC Introducing slots and playing the main stage of Lakefest.
Their debut single, ‘Robot Love’, received local radio play and support from BBC Introducing Hereford and Worcester. Their follow up, the lead single from their debut EP, Mind’s Eye, was followed by a DIY national tour.
Nuns of the Tundra have gone on to receive critical acclaim including Abbie McCarthy from BBC Radio 1, putting on a 'brilliant performance' as finalists of Firestone & Orange Amplifier's Battle of the Bands, receiving approval from one of their idols Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age, and received further radio support from BBC Introducing and BBC 6 Music's Steve Lamacq.
More recently, the band have been hard at work recording new material at Giant Wafer studios, Wales, with producer Alex Loring (Big Spring, Fangclub) and legendary mastering engineer, John Davis (Led Zeppelin; Royal Blood) at Metropolis Mastering studios. Their release 'Pray 4 U, Slay 4 U' was Elise Cobain's 'Plugged In' track of the week for Amazing Radio. Their next latest 'Baby's Got a Box of Matches' has already had over 100,000 views over all platforms and was championed by Radio 1 DJ Huw Stephens on his BBC introducing show. Since then, the Nuns have been put forward to play the legendary SXSW in Austin, Texas by Andrew Marston of BBC introducing Hereford and Worcester.
DIY Alt rock outfit 'Nuns of the Tundra' are making a name for themselves with their explosive live shows and refreshingly unique take on rock and roll. Their new socially conscious single 'Baby's Got a Box of Matches' has become a quick fan favourite, demonstrating their concise songwriting, instant-earworm vocal hooks, love for heavy riffs and fuzzy guitars. If you're looking for something nostalgic and totally new all at once, Nuns of the Tundra are here to deliver.
