Tanukichan, the project of Oakland-based musician Hannah Van Loon (formerly of Trails and Ways), recently released a single from her upcoming debut album Sundays. The song is called “Perfect,” and was produced by Chaz Bear (aka Chaz Bundick) of Toro Y Moi. Bear produced — and played on — the rest of the record as well.
“Perfect” is the second song to drop from the 10-track album, the first being “Lazy Love.” Both songs are noticeably less noisy than her wonderfully fuzzy 2016 EP Radiolove. Though Van Loon hasn’t gone full pop, the cleaner sound leaves room for Surfer Rosa-era riffs and her lackadaisical falsetto, which floats over the top like hands out of a convertible.
Sundays will come out on Bear’s label Company Records on July 13th. Stream both of the new tracks below.
