The duo dropped their latest single today, November 4, marking their first new music together since 2019’s EP ‘II’, an eight-track record receiving critical acclaim on release.
Their latest addition, ‘Tums’, is a raucous club track - a fast-paced hitter pushing their bassy, outlandish sound to its very limits.
Speaking on the new track, Mohawke said: “'Tums' was made from that collective feeling of ‘omg maybe there actually ARE going to be parties again’.”
“That feeling seemed to inspire the first principles of the TNGHT project: Keep it really fun. Dumb. Hard-hitting. Don’t overwork it,” he said.
Lunice adds, “this one really showcases our two distinct styles and how well they still work together despite their sonic differences.”
‘Tums’ also came alongside a new music video directed by Dan Streit, a typically TNGHT-style video bringing the track to life as a fun, but bonkers, visual.
The duo’s last release was also long-awaited, with a seven-year gap between their first record, self-titled ‘TNGHT’, and 2019’s ‘II’. Upon its release, Lunice explained: “While it doesn’t sound the same as the first record - the energy is. This could only come from us.”
