To no surprise to the fans who scooped up all 6 singles with ease, The Tunics’ Somewhere in Somebody’s Heart offers plenty of straightforward excitement. There are few moments of clearly orchestrated ambition, but The Tunics’ consistent songwriting approach never leaves the listener feeling dull or stylistically unsatisfied. Their roots are highly prevalent and they wear such ideologies on their sleeves, a method that sees such consistencies shine. The slick acoustic-electro combo in “A Winter’s Tale” guides Costello’s weary tale of unrequited love gone irate as he delivers his typical vocal form, a series of rushed near-spoken verses followed by a more ardently melodic chorus. Indeed, infectious choruses are a big component for a band of The Tunics’ vein and they succeed on most songs, particularly on the highly entertaining “Waiting” and “Paris, France”. The latter features the most delicately romantic on the album in its chorus, a surprisingly bare approach that features nothing more than a single violin, an acoustic guitar, and Costello’s subdued vocals. “Please don’t, please don’t break my heart,” he pleads. “I felt the wrath of your disdain, and I’ve never felt such pain before or since.” The lyrics are not the most intelligent on the market but they fit well, being wholly genuine without succumbing to generic faults. Other tracks like “Cost of Living” and “Fade Out” seem like winners as hype-targeted singles, but I am personally a fan of more diversified efforts like “Waiting” and “Paris, France”. If The Tunics can follow in a similar direction then we may have something quite special on our hands.
