SINGLE REVIEW: Tundra - Lately


Tundra are a three piece indie rock outfit from Bury St Edmunds consisting of Caitlin Pegley on Vocals, Elliot Roger-Brown on Drums and bass player Elliot Booth.


To date the band have released an array of singles including their debut release "Pretty Bird" which came out in 2017. They have also played the likes of Cambridge's Strawberry Fair, toured with bands such as The Marmozets and Muncie Girls, gigged extensively in their native East Anglia as well as receiving airplay on BBC 6 Music and Radio X.


"Lately" is the lead single from their forthcoming “The Sunshine Cafe EP" which is set for release on June 3rd. If "Lately" is a good indication of what's to come the world is in for a treat!


The track starts off slow-ish before blasting into some adorable upbeat Bubblegrunge-esque indie guitars. Caitin's vocals are magnificent at times sounding a little bluesy and at others sounding quintessentially British. The song teases the boundaries of so many genres at times crossing into punk and bedroom rock.


The overall sound is so relevant to what is in favour at the moment and reminiscent of bands such as Peaness, Fresh, Cherym and The Beths but also strikes similarities to The Libertines and other early 2000's indie.


"Lately" is a really great feel good, get up and dance summer song. I always write my reviews whilst pacing, it helps me focus, and I can say with no shame at all this song had me dancing round my kitchen!! I'm excited to listen to the EP.
