The Tunnel - "Condemned/Collapse" (KOS031) 

“Collapse” was recorded in February 2020, right before the lockdown started. We banged it out in one day with Jordan Sobolew (Reptoid) in Santo Studio in Oakland, and Jordan captured that urgency. Musically, Collapse is a mixture of physical release and out-of-body elevation, with a dose of Unsane/Jesus Lizard feral sleaze. Lyrically, Collapse’s protagonist is a romantic against a brutal world, lapsing into iconic self-parody as they loathe and love and fall apart. The video collage for Collapse was created along with a companion video “Condemned”, both influenced by the aesthetics of 80s-90s industrial/sci-fi films like Decoder and Tetsuo:Iron Man.
