"Tunnel Vision" by Jonny OlleyReview
Out today is "Tunnel Vision", the third single by Jonny Olley, following his debut "Slow" (and which was featured on ‘Hot Music Live Presents Volume Five') and its follow up "Change".
Pitched somewhere between the two in terms of mood & sound, what is especially noticeable about "Tunnel Vision" is his increasing confidence in writing & this is his most ambitious structure & arrangement to date: it's illuminating that he himself feels that it's his best work so far.
It's also his most rock like composition with moody, ominous riffing added to his repertoire and consequently the fullest arrangement to date.
If the music is towards the rock end of the spectrum, then the lyrics mirror this riffage being a series of repeated mantras which in turn help reinforce the notion within the song's message: this is about a very focused desire, oblivious perhaps to things outside that narrowness of vision & consequently bordering on the obsessional. Which he evokes effectively by these means: ho only wants the object of his desire & beyond that, little else matters. A clear message & in its intensity, one he presumably hopes will not just make his point but help him achieve his end.
