Consequence Of Sound premieres new TTNG track “Sponkulus Nodge” 


TTNG (fka This Town Needs Guns) know a thing or two about navigating complicated pathways. Their music has always been a labyrinth of math rock, filled with knotty rhythms that would seem to defy the melodies of the vocals. But the complexity extends beyond the recorded music right to the processes of actually getting it onto tape. They’ve been working on their follow-up to 2013’s, this July’s Disappointment Island, since before that last album was even released, and finding time to work out their intricate compositions wasn’t easy.

“With various touring commitments interspersed between the writing of [Disappointment Island], it was a difficult process to work through,” guitarist Tim Collis tells Consequence of Sound. “Snatching weekends here and there to try to rehash and complete draft versions of songs finally allowed a few more structured ideas to be completed for Hank [Tremain] to work on vocals. Partway through 2014, [drummer] Chris [Collis] and [I] managed to take a little time to try out some new riffs, working some of them into what would become this track, ‘Sponkulus Nodge’.”

All that patient perseverance paid off, though, as the song Collis discusses above proves. “Sponkulus Nodge” is a heady twister of a track, bass lines dropping down like water from stalactites into a pond rippling with Collis’ impossible guitar licks. Yet despite this cavernous vibe, there’s an open air quality that lifts it up on the assurance of Tremain’s vocals and the other Collis’ tripping drums.

AV Club premieres new TTNG track “Coconut Crab”

Oxford’s TTNG (a.k.a. This Town Needs Guns) has been working up dashing math-rock compositions for over a decade, but it’s always avoided being pigeonholed. And on Disappointment Islandcoming July 8 on Sargent House—the trio’s offered up its most accessible, pop-minded batch of songs yet. The A.V. Club is premiering the album’s opening track, “Coconut Crab,” below, and it shows TTNG at its most streamlined. Guitarist Tim Collis still concocts inhuman riffs, the likes of which make it hard to believe he’s the band’s lone guitarist. It makes bassist-vocalist Henry Tremain’s ability to find space for sing-along melodies all the more notable, as he flutters atop the ornate composition and never lets the song’s knotty rhythms get the best of him. Tremain also wrote a lengthy explanation of the song’s genesis, along with demos of the track, all of which can be found here.

Pre-orders for Disappointment Island are available now.
