Bridge & Tunnel







Faces In The Crowd(Harmsonic)









Bridge & Tunnel are Mark and Nathan (what solid, working-class names these ambient post-dance music bods always have) and this, their second single, features Pinkie McClure on vocals, quietly asphyxiating in this thick suspension of ghostly trip-hop, coming on like the woman in Eduard Munch's The Scream ("Ghosts are scratching at my door...").[/I] With its measured, ominous rhythmical tread and unexpected fragments of sound

off-screen, this is aurally redolent of long, faintly panic-stricken walks through unfamiliar stretches of town on foggy nights after the last bus. Just the sort of thing to jolly

up your August.
