It’s always a satisfying feeling when a song’s title matches its vibe perfectly. Montreal prog-rock duo Tunnel has released a track that does just that with “Super Charged Powerball.”
The song utilizes video game-esque electronic noises along with a jazzy drumbeat, overlapped with sassy, evil-sounding vocals. With these elements blended together, the band has created a truly unique sonic experience.
The song belongs to the brand new record, Out For A While, which was self-recorded by the pair in a remote cottage in the Gaspésie region of Quebec. Since the band was born from a last-minute decision by members François Jalbert and Kevin Warrenhave in 2013, Tunnel has aligned themselves among the premium prog-rock acts in the nation.
Hey! I’m Allen Steinberg and I’m currently based in Belleville, Ontario. I’m a Journalism & Communications student doing my four-week placement with Canadian Beats because I love writing and I love music. Outlets like Canadian Beats are important because they care about showing off smaller / newer artists who may otherwise not get much exposure. I think it really keeps them going. I also sing and play guitar in my band Arm’s Length. Happy to be here!
