Chelsea Wolfe Shares new video for "Tunnel Lights"

Chelsea Wolfe has shared “Tunnel Lights”, a track off her forthcoming album, She Reaches Out To She Reaches Out To She, which drops on February 9, 2024 via Loma Vista. As Wolfe explains, “Tunnel Lights is about actually living instead of just ‘getting by.’ It’s about waking up to the fact that you’ve been languishing in the dark and it’s time to start taking steps towards the lights that’ll guide you out of the tunnel-cave.” Listen to Tunnel Lights here and watch the video here.

“I’m sanctified in my lover’s eyes,” Wolfe leads with on Tunnel Lights. “No way around it/No way to fight/A pull too strong/Don’t try to forfeit/The way is through/On tunnel lights.” Dense and minimal, raw and opulent, intimate and expansive, the production of the song, and throughout the album, breaks apart then rebuilds – samples of the band are cut and pasted back together, heavy guitars dissolve into trip-hop breaks; the vocal delivery feels sculptural and is both hushed and soaring.

The Tunnel Lights video presents Wolfe collaborating once again with director, George Gallardo Kattah, and was also filmed in Colombia. Wolfe comments: “The Tunnel Lights video is a contemplative wander through possibility, grief, and wonder, represented by the carrying of a mysterious egg through the mystical landscapes of the Colombian páramo, inspired by the energy and flora of the mountains themselves. Starling murmurations act as both guide and coven as emotions become unfrozen.”

Gallardo Kattah adds, “Tunnel Lights is a love letter to my country and my team. Being able to pull off something like this in this ecosystem required for many things to line up, both by chance and by hard work. In very simple terms, the video is a portrait of Chelsea looking and reaching out to herself.”

She Reaches Out To She Reaches Out To She was Produced by David Andrew Sitek of TV On The Radio and mixed by Shawn Everett (Slowdive, SZA, The War On Drugs), She Reaches Out was recorded by Derek Coburn at Federal Prism Studios and mastered by Heba Kadry. Supporting Wolfe throughout is the core band of multi-instrumentalist, Ben Chisholm; drummer, Jess Gowrie; and guitarist, Bryan Tulao. There’s an intimate, ASMR-like quality to Wolfe’s vocals on the album – nothing feels straightforward, left to chance, or as expected. As Wolfe says, “This album demanded to be lived.”
