Tankus the Henge have built their reputation on unforgettable songwriting, spectacular live performances and relentless hard work, playing hundreds of shows across Europe and building a devoted fan base along the way.

Supported and championed by BBC Radio 2, BBC 6 Music and BBC Radio 4 and hailed for their remarkable live performances from the likes of The Guardian who described them as "....a virtual carnival of sound that’s high on energy and deep on soul.”

Their new single ‘Things Were Better Before’ is their newest single from their forthcoming album, ‘I Crave Attention Baby, But Not When I Drive’ out 29th November.

Winning film festivals awards all over the world, the mesmerizing video tells a story of a dystopian future, commenting on environmental issues and the glimpse of hope we have left to rectify it.
The making of the music video for ‘Things Were Better Before’ was curated in collaboration with Trukitrek at Artisti after a chance meeting in Pennabilli.

Between them they dreamt up a short film that is both beautiful in design and poignant in its message. It deals with environmental issues, specifically looking at the death of our oceans. The film portrays a brutal vision of a post-apocalyptic world, the protagonist searches for a glimmer of hope but prospects are stark, and the destruction is seemingly irreversible, as we are part of the ecosystem we are destroying.

By presenting such a terrible vision of the near future, this short film is a “Wake-up Machine” to those who view it, encouraging green and sustainable thinking to a society which needs to pay attention and affect real change before it’s too late.

The song itself, which has echoes of Bowie and Blur is a melancholy look to the past, when really, we should be working out how to make the future better instead.
