Named for the Technical University of Nova Scotia, east coast supergroup TUNS have released a flawless poprock single with “Mixed Messages.”  The band is clearly more than the sum of its parts, managing to produce a sound distinct from those from whence they came e.g. Sloan, Super Friends/Flashing Lights, and the Inbreds.  A new wave guitar sound carries the opener, then some harmony vocals come in, only to kick things into higher gear with a chimey guitar and greater urgency to the vocals, then things fall away to just bass/drums and some great solo guitar work, before repeating the whole cycle again (while still clocking in at an efficient 3 minutes and 24 seconds).  The track appears on the band’s just released self-titled debut record, TUNS, an album aptly described by The Record.com as “all killer, no filler.”  If one poprock album should make your lather-rinse-repeat playlist come autumn, this is it.
