TUNE Nel Unlit - Unhung (feat. Tom Joshua & Gina Walters)
Unhung is the second single from upcoming debut album “Wake for the Dreaming”, a rock-opera based on Worlds’ End from Neil Gaiman’s epic “Sandman” graphic novel series.
The album has been produced and mixed by the band with the help of Peter Brewis of Mercury Prize nominated Field Music and will be released on February 14th 2020 on Butterfly Effect (on limited edition, snow white vinyl) and Spooker Rekkids. The album features a cast of singers, each playing a role within the story, including, Tom Joshua, Our Krypton Son, Dressed Like Wolves and Before Breakfast.
Nel Unlit are a group of nine songwriters, storytellers and musicians who have their roots all over the North East of England and Northern Ireland. Despite the idea for the project brewing for 7 years, the band officially formed in 2016, from past and present members of Sullivan and Gold, Dressed Like Wolves, Pellethead, General Sherman and Hold Music and began making music in the attic of musical institution Westgarth Social Club.
Singles “Fireflies” and “Apple” earned the band critical acclaim, radio play on BBC Radio 6, track of the week on BBC Tees and comparisons to Nick Drake, Richard Dawson, Sufjan Stevens and Bon Iver.
