Tunnels Q&A

Name of band:

Where are you from?
Italy, Brescia.
Who is in your band?
I'm Matteo (vocals+guitars+synthesizers), Giorgio (backing vocals, guitars, synthesizers, bass), Paolo (drums, percussions).

How would you describe yourselves?
A band you can assimilate in the indie/alternative rock cauldron. 

Who are your main influences musically?
Vast and heterogeneous. Smashing Pumpkins, Radiohead, Tool, NIN, Depeche Mode, The Cure. The post rock scene with Godspeed you black emperor, Explosions in the sky and Mogwai. Post metal scene with ISIS, Pelican, Russian Circles. Anything with the prefix post... Jokes apart, we're influenced by what we like the most. And it can be Nick Drake or Leonard Cohen but also Godflesh and Neurosis...

What do you hope to achieve in music?
Artistic accomplishment. I think that this is the best a band can achieve nowadays. One would strive and struggle in order to make music his daily job but that is really really though and arduous these days...

What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why?
Our EP Sharps and Flats. People around the world spending their time listening to our songs and enjoying our music. And all the positive (sometimes enthusiastic) feedbacks we've received. That can easily be considered a highlight. 

And what’s the moment you want to forget?
Bass player auditions... Still looking for a bass player...

If you could choose one of your songs as an advert for your music, what would it be and why?
I think REAL, the first track from our EP Sharps and Flats.

Where can we listen to it?

Where can we find out more about your music?

Anything else you’d like to say about your band that I forgot to ask?
We're working hard on a new album, it's going to be 10/11 songs and we are very excited about that. New songs are coming and they are something different than what we've previously done and released. So, stay tuned!
