“I see our music as a hot-wired transformer in a dead dark city,” says The Tunnel’s Jeff Wagner. “The dystopian future is now. I think the last few years’ apocalyptic vibe only sharpened our music’s sense of struggle and pleasure in the face of grim paranoia.”

Stabs of growling bass, discordant peals of guitar, and robotic drums set the stage for Wagner’s unmistakable voice – a sinister croon, caked in distortion and sleaze. Bearing traces of such pompadoured antiheroes as Nick Cave, Wagner’s dark and theatrical twang is offset by the band’s mechanized throb. These two energies – the sultry noir and the cold machinery – grind against each other and create the sparks that are The Tunnel. Think, The Birthday Party meets Big Black. Or, to describe it in cinematic terms, it might be film noir and cyberpunk projected onto the same screen. Indeed, the band counts directors like Lynch and Cronenberg amongst its greatest influences.
