Man-made Noise

Man-made Noise


This is music that bubbles with pop, funk, shuffling acoustica and beats. Inspired from its roots in Hull, North east England, it is lyrically gritty, mystical and thought provoking. Beck meets Badly Drawn Boy at the Elbow of Radiohead.


Man-made Noise began as a pot of studio ideas from Yorkshire-based musician Terry Dunn.

The debut album is almost solely his own work and is a mix of styles that range from dark sequenced narratives, twisted melodic ballads and shoegaze/funk crossover.
The influences are vast and diverse, and the music has been likened to material by artists such as Elbow, Radiohead and Elliott Smith. It was released in Oct 08 to glowing reviews.

Terry has been extensively touring solo in Japan during 2009 using a combination of loops, effects and beat box to an awesome reaction.

On returning to the UK in June, Terry gathered together some friends from the local Hull scene to form a band, and they have since played shows in Liverpool, Manchester and on the radio show BBC 'Introducing Raw Talent'.

With a second album penned and awaiting the studio, Man-made noise is making people sit up and take notice.
Terry has been recently been commissioned to compose music for an album dedicated to the poems of Hull's Phillip Larkin.

Little knife, little cup,
little trolley cleaning up,
little bread roll, little piece of butter,
little milk carton, little tray of clutter,
little window, little clouds,
little lives in strangers hands
