In "Tunnelvision," it's hard not to get lost in Here We Go Magic's pulsing, reverb-drenched guitars.
Rarely have a band name and a song title both been so appropriately chosen: In "Tunnelvision," Luke Temple's new project Here We Go Magic quickly establishes that nothing is as it seems. Anyone coming in cold, not knowing about Temple's involvement, would assume that the voice repeating the words "Tunnelvision / Strange decision" is a woman, for one thing.
At the same time, it's hard not to get lost in Here We Go Magic's guitars, which provide a steady pulse at the same time they drench the song in reverb and delay. By roughly the three-minute mark — around the time Temple sings, "Anything is possible" — "Tunnelvision" has become engrossing to the point of hypnosis. Which, given the band's name, makes a lot of sense.
