With Tunnel Vision, Magdalia creates a sonic tapestry that weaves together threads of raw emotion and introspection. It leaves us listeners enraptured and yearning for more. You can’t help but dive headfirst into a sea of emotions. It is unlike anything you have heard her write before. You hear a much more full instrumental as compared to her previous minimal acoustic atmosphere.
Tunnel Vision is exactly as the name suggests, she speaks of a relationship that is running in circles with an end that doesn’t seem to be getting closer. She says “I’ve been running out of town baby, to get out of this place. But you’ll always come back, honey. The same problems you face.” and “Just like a diamond, you’re rare but you’re flawed.”. There is a sense of distance between herself and the person she is speaking to, almost as a frustrated friend. The production of this number is truly something else. The lyrics overlaid with the backing create a catchy and interesting texture that is rarely heard before. Magdalia creates a world that is easy to dive into and experience to the fullest, showcasing her excellent quality as both a writer and composer.
A film that has an incredible playlist and sense of humour is Tragedy Girls. The Thriller come Dark Comedy is one of the few films that passes the Bechdel Test. Tunnel Vision would be a perfect addition to the film adding to the multiple layers that makes this film a great watch. Tunnel Vision is sure to move you with Magdalia’s bold and powerful voice. She has taken a risk from her usual minimal backing to a much more techno-pop atmosphere and we’re here for it!
