The Tunnel - Sultry Daggers

Label: Self Released
Year: 2012

A member of the band was nice enough to hip us to this, we were nice enough to like it, and now you're nice enough to be reading about it. Nice.
The music? Not "nice". "Bleak"? Yeah. It's pretty bleak. Like, in a Bauhaus kind of way. In a lot of different post-punk kind of ways actually. Bauhaus, Birthday Party, Joy Division, you know? The Peter Murphy styled vocals make the Bauhaus comparison inevitable. Not a bad guy to be likened to though, right?
The sound has been updated though, it comes across bigger, more muscular, not unlike Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster did some years back, with some modern influences along the lines of Colossomite, something kinda of mathy and angular. It works.

They have a vinyl version you can order that looks pretty fresh.
