In the age of mass technology empires like Google, Meta or Amazon, every single move a person makes is tracked and measured. Where you are, what you click on and even what you say. Tunic’s new track “Dull Ache” explores these concepts. It was recorded and produced in October 2022 with Drew Riekman (Blessed) at No Fun Club (Winnipeg, Manitoba), mixed by Seth Manchester at Machines with Magnets (Pawtucket, Rhode Island) and mastered by Carl Saff at Saff Mastering (Chicago, Illinois).
The band’s vocalist David Schellenberg explains,” I feel like the song shows our growth as a band and as overall songwriters, it’s really the first song we ever wrote front to back with Tomas (Ingham, new bassist) and shows a slightly new direction for the band, instead of an onslaught of punishing noise and 2-minute sprints of songs DA is restrained when it needs to be, and explosive when it needs to be. Lyrically the song explores the concept of data mining and just generally how with the internet, you are always tracked and your actions are being measured constantly.”
