Nuns of the Tundra “Baby’s Got a Box of Matches”

With an old school sound made up of rocking guitar riffs and angsty vocals, “Baby’s Got a Box of Matches” is perfect for anyone looking to add to their punk-rock playlist. The lyrics tell a story of a dysfunctional family that may seem ordinary on the outside, but have demons they’re hiding behind closed doors. When paired with the visually captivating music video that consists of scenes and shots from 1950-era television, this song takes on a deeper meaning of now vs then. As the chorus says, it may seem like love was then and lust is now, but even families in the 1950s had their issues and it may be time to burn that way of thinking to the ground. This catchy, energetic song will have you pressing replay immediately, so check it out below!


A prominent part of the ‘Worcester Wave’ movement, DIY alternative rock 4 piece ‘Nuns of the Tundra’ strip rock down to its undies and redress it in your pot head mate’s best leathers.

Taking inspiration from the pummeling stoner rock riffs of Queens of the Stone Age and the contagious pop psychedelia melodicism of Tame Impala, underpinned with a rhythm section that moves through swampy grooves to flights of sheer technicality, the Nuns quickly gained a renowned reputation for their riotous live performances, leading to BBC Introducing slots and playing the main stage of Lakefest 2018.

Their debut single, ‘Robot Love’, received local radio play and support from BBC Introducing Hereford and Worcester. Their follow up, the lead single from their debut EP, Mind’s Eye, was followed by a 6 date DIY national tour across Bristol, Worcester, London and Malvern.

Since their previous release, Nuns of the Tundra have gone on to receive critical acclaim from Abbie McCarthy from BBC Radio 1, after being chosen from more than 350+ unsigned acts, putting on “a brilliant performance” during Firestone’s BOTB; received approval from Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age; and received further radio support from BBC Introducing and BBC 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq for their latest release, ‘Hidden Eraser’.

More recently, the band has been hard at work recording new material at Giant Wafer studios, Wales, with producer Alex Loring (Big Spring; Fangclub) and legendary mastering engineer, John Davis (Led Zeppelin; Royal Blood) at Metropolis Mastering studios.
