Tungz – Somebody To Get Shy With Feat. Bad Sounds

Bristol-based outfit Tungz shares the bright and psych-pop tinged single ‘Somebody To Get Shy With’, featuring our all-time favs and fellow Bristolians, Bad Sounds.

Bringing definite sunkissed vibes (much needed at this time, thank you very much guys) and a breezy attitude, we can’t get enough of their addictive swagger.

Speaking about the new collaboration, Tungz said,

“We’ve been fans of Bad Sounds for so long and always felt a spiritual connection to their vibe. We gradually got to know them through the Bristol scene going to each other’s shows and hanging out afterwards. So when the Tungzphone rang and the gang wanted to do a song with us we were buzzed as fuzz. We’ve only ever produced music at home so it was crazy to see the Bad Sounds mothership and sit side by side exploring new musical worlds. It was so cool to get to know the guys better, and bring into real life the connection we’d felt to them both as fans and Bristol music people. The song is about changing relationships: falling for a friend and not knowing how to deal with your new feelings.”
