Video For the Track

Tim Story, a Grammy nominated producer and one half of the enigmatic and soulful indie pop duo Blue Tofu (, calls their blend of seductive, brooding grooves, deep visceral textures and his partner Andrea Mathews‘ haunting vocals “mutant pop music…sort of trip-hop with a smoky, David Lynch kind of vibe.”Their delightfully hard to peg sound is back on the charts, with their latest single Hunger Tango“ impressively at #10 on the Billboard Hot Single Sales Chart for the week ending November 8.             

Blue Tofu’s previous single from their new album Our Room reached #2 on the same chart and hit the Top 25 on the FMQB AC40 Radio chart.

The duo has also just released a buoyant, compelling sci-fi video for the “Hunger Tango” which features Mathews in colorful makeup aboard a spaceship populated with various intergalactic workers. The video was directed by filmmaker Al Franklin. The clip can be viewed at

The video is already attracting attention from across the video programming spectrum, including video on-demand (PCMusic); multi-market (H2o Television, which connects with 1.6 million potential viewers on cable throughout the five boroughs of New York City); regional (Video Hits, which reaches 1 million potential viewers on cable in Rochester, Syracuse andBuffalo, NY); and retail pool/content provider (ScreenPlay, which services music video reels that go to over 25,000 prominent retailers, nightclubs and restaurants in the U.S. and Canada, including Macys and IKEA).

In their July/August 2013 issue, The Absolute Sound - a popular magazine that reviews audiophile-oriented music and equipment- chose Blue Tofu’s self-titled debut as one of the Top 40 Best Sounding Recordings of all time. This ranking puts Blue Tofu on a list with some of the most legendary multi-million selling albums of all time – including Miles Davis’ Kind of Blue, The Beach Boys’ Pet Sounds, and classics by SinatraJoni Mitchell, even Stravinsky.

Despite a DNA that slides effortlessly through retro lounge, noir jazz and electronica, Our Room remains bracingly modern - not at all out of place with artists like Beach HouseAmanda Palmer or Feist.
