Tunderground biography
TÜNDÉRGOUND are a very eclectic psychedelic music group from Miercurea-Ciuc, Romania. A stage-oriented, large and ambitious outfit, Tündérground is comprised of seven musicians and a video artist. Started in 2004, the band project was completed in 2005 and has been playing all the major festivals in the area ever since, including the Pepsi Sziget Festival in Budapest and the Stufstock Festival at the Black Sea. After a long and successful live experience, the debut studio album 'Mirtill' was released in 2007 through the Hungarian record label Folkeurópa. The band is currently touring and continuously expanding their musical universe.

Tündérground's music can be described as a modern exploration of musical form and perception in the context of colliding style patterns. The perpetual beat laid down serves as a base for development in either a direction of ethnic music or one of fictional cosmic topography. Pumping bass grooves with electronic vibes remind of acid-jazz and drum'n'bass, but superimposed themes played by percussion, violin and Jew harp bring world fusion memories (like Turkish music or Transylvanian dances) and references (including OZRIC TENTACLES, MAHAVISHNU ORCHESTRA or DJABE). In a sense of cosmic conciliation, a mythological peaceful side of the music is provided by keyboard waves and primordial, pastoral flute (ŕ la HIDRIA SPACEFOLK). The result is a highly recommended musical melting pot, to be enjoyed to all fans of psychedelic, world fusion, krautrock, electro or simply good fun live music.

3 stars A novel developer of Kraut-Space Rock.

Although the beginning of the first track "Monszun" sounds like a copy of Pink Floyd's album Wish You Were Here to me, but there's no problem in the matter ... their whole album is full of originality and eccentricity, which can be just upon the boundaries of Space Rock or Krautrock. Often we tend to avert our eyes and ears if it's tough to classify an artist strictly, but TÜNDÉRGROUND have an undoubted attraction in their uneasily-categorized musical style.

Sometimes the musical style tinged with Space Rock or Krautrock colour is likely to get danceable and techno-pop-ish, but TÜNDÉRGROUND can be just on the borderline between Kraut-ish Space Rock and Techno Pop I always feel. Delightfully rhythmic parts can remind me something of similar ones by a Japanese Krautrock outfit Omoide Hatoba (of course, TÜNDÉRGROUND can be more rigidly serious than Omoide Hatoba, a Kraut flexibility). And the point that they can much effectively induce various instruments including strings, horns, and percussion, should be absolutely similar to other progressive rock bands. Impressive are especially keen violin sounds and dry flute ones. Moreover, the shortest song "About Istambul" is the masterpiece for me ... an Oriental-moody and swift-tempo percussive song with danceable (but persistently perverse) shifts, a terrific stuff.

In near future, progressive outfits with such an incredible Electronic-kraut-Space style may increase gradually methinks?

Thanks to for the artist addition.
