“Vita And The Woolf’s ‘Tunnels’ Is A Howling Synth-Pop Masterpiece” – NYLON
“The effortless shift from soft to intense, full-on belting vocals in the space of a few bars is kind of impressive, and perhaps a little scary as well!” – M83 for USA Today
“a larger-than-life voice (…) Paired with her other musical mainstay, piano, Vita and the Woolf is a new spin on pop and soul.” – Urban Outfitters
Inspired by the love relationship between novelists Vita Sackville-West and Virginia Woolf, Philadelphia’s Vita and the Woolf will release the long awaited new album, Tunnels, June 16 on Believe Global Label Services. Today the band is streaming Tunnels in full with NYLON ahead of its June 16 release. The band previously debuted album cut “Super Ranger” as a part of ELLE’s list of “Best Songs To Listen To In June,” and released the track “Sun Drop” with IMPOSE alongside an in-depth conversation about creative influences and the Spice Girls.
The band has received widespread critical acclaim, among others finding a fan in M83 who wrote about them for USA Today as well as recently being dubbed a “Band You Need To See” by Billboard. A dynamic and cerebral collection of soulful pop, the album touches on power dynamics in relationships and society as well as sexual discovery and empowerment.
There is a stunning androgyny to Pague’s lyrics, style, behemoth vocals and empowered sexuality. Supported by the dynamic drumming of Adam Shumski, the band recently wrapped up an east coast tour following a national tour with Clap Your Hands Say Yeah. With stops at Firefly, Moontower and Philadelphia Folk Festivals planned this Summer, be sure to catch them live and stay tuned for more news coming soon!
