Five years after we quit playing as a live-band and our last gig took place in 2006, we launched a new weblog and released a new album in 2011. Tuna was founded in Utrecht-Overvecht (Netherlands), but we’ve spread out over the country since. While finishing the album, our singer was even living in Australia! But long distances didn’t keep us from recording our first album. With much enthusiasm, engagement and many, many short nights we were finally able to present our first full length album. It is called ‘Isle of Tuna’ and contains 11 tracks, heaps of funky raps, electronic beats and acoustic guitars.

Isle of Tuna

The entire album is based upon recorded jamsessions in our living rooms in Utrecht and Enschede, followed by adding tracks and exchanging samples by e-mail (physical distance is a relative concept on the internet!). All tracks have been finalised in Tilburg. ‘Isle of Tuna’ is our coolest record so far and we love you to hear our songs. Click here and listen to our album samples!

In 2012 we re-released our track ‘Beautiful‘ from the ‘Insandouts’ demo from 2005. The re-release of Beautiful was followed by the release of a new single in 2013, titled ‘The Call‘. At this moment Tuna is not able to perform live on stage. We are a collaboration of four recording musicians composing funky, summery and cheerful hiphop songs, supported by internet videos.
