Spotlight: Nunki

Nunki is a five piece Belgian band made up of Hanne Torfs (vocals & synths), Ruben den Brok (synths), Joerie Dekker (guitar & percussion), Ivo Schot (bass), Ruben Mesika (drums). Their self titled debut EP was an eclectic, dreamy record perhaps best described as dream-pop or psychedelic indie with a modern electronic touch, which reminds listeners of acts like London Grammar, Kimbra and Björk.

They told us that they ‘invite listeners to join on an atmospheric journey to a small planet on the outskirts of the milky way where you will discover a unique story in each and every song’ – Sounds good to us!

They also point out that there are a number of characters on the album, including a horse escaping from human pampering and a polar bear falling in love with a frozen man found underneath a thick layer of ice. How surreal and awesome!

He loves getting involved in crazy music projects and plays the bassoon, oboe, piano, recorder and guitar. He also makes lots of electronic music and loves collaborating. He sings too if you ask nicely and once shamefully sang as a backing singer for Will Young. When he’s not moaning about the state of the music industry or public transport in Manchester, he works with the Twine community and handles social media, the blog and partnerships with companies and institutions.
