9000 records is stoked to announce the release of Tommigun’s third album “Wooden Son”, that marks a shift in the band’s sound.
Tommigun’s new album has taken a darker turn.
Adventurous, ominous and brooding are just some keywords to characterise the album.
While their first two albums felt like an emotional confrontation between the two lead singers: Kaat and Thomas, the new songs are inspired by the record collection of prison work songs, chants and blues music, Thomas grew up with.
Mixing these influences with their own sound results in chants where the whole band is singing at the top of their lungs on a layer of heavy bass, eerie keyboards and whimsical drumming.
Dark and almost oppressive atmospheres are seamlessly blended with beautiful harmonies and catchy melodies.
“Wooden Son” shows off a band on a new creative high.
Tommigun might be initiated by Brussels’ based Thomas Devos, The ties with Ghent are strong. Not only is band member Pim De Wolf (als known from Thou and Helsinki) a well-known musician and sound-engineer in the Ghent music scène, the album has also been produced and recorded by Ghent’s very own producing Guru Koen Gisen.
Tommigun: Kaat Arnaert (zang), Pim De Wolf (bass, zang), Mattijs Vanderleen (drums, beats, percussie en zang), Joeri Cnapelinckx (keyboards, zang), Thomas Devos (gitaar, zang).
'Wooden Son' will be released on 9000 Records by Consouling Sounds, on September 23th, 2016.
