Basement Revolver: Tunnel Vision

Following their very good debut album, Heavy Eyes, Hamilton's Basement Revolver prepare of the release of their sophomore full length, Embody, a product of quarantine-fixed creativity, exploring concepts around "identity, faith, mental illness, and sexuality." 

Tunnel Vision, the quartet's latest single, is a noisy and heavy shoegaze piece whose instrumental fuzziness is wonderfully contradicted by a soft and emotional vocal delivery. The song is about guitarist and vocalist Chrisy Hurn’s battle with bulimia and body dissatisfaction, and it seethes with severity.

"Eating disorders are – for lack of a better term – a mindfuck," the band comment. "Unfortunately, many aspects of pop culture confirm elements of EDs by focusing heavily on weight loss, fat phobia, and unrealistic beauty standards."
