NEW ALBUM – OUT 4 DECEMBER 2020
WATCH VIDEO FOR FIRST TRACK: “FAYAWAY”
Join the visionary rock’n’roll storytellers as they open the gates to a utopian new world with their third studio album. A place without prejudice, Luna Park! is populated by the weirdest and most wonderful people, there to help you forget reality and open your mind to new ways of thinking. Among them is: “Fayaway”…
A storming new track that has clocked-up over 16,000 streams already, “Fayaway” is based on the semi-fictional character in Typee, a nautical adventure novel by Herman Melville in 1846 (who went on to write Moby Dick). An inhabitant of the island the protagonist lands on, he can’t help but fall under her spell in the strange new land he finds himself in.
“We thought she had a very mystical power over him” says Tankus frontman Jaz Delorean, “in reality, Melville never forgot about her and pined for her until the day he died.”
Finding asylum in ‘Luna Park!’ all these years later, Fayaway is one of countless things to fall in love with on Tankus the Henge’s upcoming album.
Homing in on an array of colourful characters including “Susie Sidewinder“, “Sundance Kid”, and “Pilgrim”, the record follows their journeys as they each turn their backs on a city they once loved, now polluted by “glitterlung”, and make the journey to the utopian Luna Park! in search of a better life
