Album Review: Age Of Conviction – Tunnel Traffic

Adam Hachey – aka TUNNEL TRAFFIC – gave a sneak preview into his album, ‘Age Of Conviction’ last month through singles, ‘Skip’, ‘I’ll Be Sorry’ and ‘Another Story’.

Now out, the 11-track project, continues on the theme from the three mentioned tracks, with roaring guitar riffs running throughout, giving each track on the collection a 90’s grunge/nostalgic feel.Tunnel Traffic teams up with vocalist and long-time collaborator, Jacky Muñoz, who offers balance to each singles by adding a degree of tenderness against the hell-raising, well executed plucks.

So if you’re a fan of 90s Iconic rock bands like Nirvana, well Tunnel Traffic’s ‘Age Of Conviction’ may very well hit the spot.

Adam Hachey – akaTUNNEL TRAFFIC once again calls upon long-time collaborator and singer Jacky Muñoz for brand new single ‘Skip’.

Still obtaining a nostalgic feel, ‘Skip’ takes a different detour to previous racy effort, ‘Another Story’, and sports low down gritty arrangements (think Nirvana) with Muñoz’s vocals titillatingly weaving throughout two-and-a-half production.

Released yesterday (19th November), ‘Skip’ is the second installment from Tunnel Traffic’s upcoming LP, ‘Age of Convictions, out next month. Have a listen below…

Album Review: Meesh – Tunnel Traffic

It’s been some time (I think roughly a year and a half) since Adam Hachey, the brainchild of TUNNEL TRAFFIC, appeared on NEW LEASE MUSIC with his 2015 album, ‘Absolute Dreams’. Out of nowhere, this alternative folk-rocker recently emailed his new album, ‘Meesh, in which he produced while making his big shift to the City of Brotherly Love.

Unlike his previous collection, which was an atmospherically intense affair, ‘Meesh’ gets right down to it with bursts of zesty guitar licks through the first few tracks, ‘Lesson Learned’, ‘Pockets’ and ‘Anew’.

The psychedelic ride passes and makes way for a softer journey of lo-fi/new wave(ish) arrangements and the rich influence of that  70s inspired soulful rock, before turning up the tempo through efforts, ‘Maxwell’ and ‘All Day, Err Day.’

The latter part of the album is what I personally think is classic TRAFFIC TUNNEL. With the return of the zesty guitar plucks, the almost stripped back pieces becomes intense and personal, where you can not only hear, but FEEL every word uttered.

‘Meesh’ sees Adam comes out of his comfort zone and go down the experimentation route, which is great – but personally, he’s at his best when he perform songs that hone right into the soul.
