“Think Dubstar, St Etienne and a more relaxed Bis (i.e. after the sugar come down) all produced by Beck and E from Eels, if you will, and you’ll be getting close to the truth of The Rungs. The gorgeous truth.”
“When I unknowingly crack a little smile after absorbing it across music that mold different sounds and unusual textures into songs with a unique familiarity I have never quite experienced before. That’s where husband and wife duo THE RUNGS (Mandy & Diwas Gurung) come in.. Leaving me intrigued and pining for more.”
“..the sort of thing that bicycles up and down your insides, never totally leaving. It’s fresh, partly because of the retro sounds, partly because it clearly has one foot in 2014, but mostly because its simply very good. Indeed.”
“Thank the Lord then for bands such as New York’s the Rungs. Made up of wife and husband team Mandy and Diwas Gurung this is an unusual confection, an electro splatter gun that for the most part fires juicy melodies every which way.”
“It’s a hypnotic mix of throbbing basslines, chiming guitars, swirling synths with a hint of mystical eastern promise thrown in for good measure.”
