It’s yearning, it’s this feeling of being in love, but also being terrified because you’re so open, so vulnerable.

Everything that makes you feel, makes me feel,” sings an open-hearted and achingly vulnerable Ant Enoch on his sophomore single.

On the surface, “Tunnel Road” feels familiar, at least to a degree. It’s an atmospheric, brooding love song, sung by a guy and a gal, exploring the nuances of their blossoming relationship and how those deepening roots impact their intimate connection.

That’s the thing about the surface; you don’t see all that’s inside – and for all there is to see on top, there’s so much more going on than meets the eye. Enoch, born Anthony Beard, isn’t singing with just anyone; his co-writer is Georgia James Potter, who performs as Moreton (and was previously one of Atwood’s Editor’s Picks). With every breath they take, every sweet lyric, every subtle exhale, every line they deliver in soul-stirring harmony, it all feels autobiographical, which makes experiencing this song that much more intense. Enoch and Moreton capture the warmth and wonder of a love story in “Tunnel Road,” a shiver-inducing seduction of raw intimacy, soulful passion, and smoldering sound.

It’s a gentle reverie that steadily grows from a radiant whisper into a resounding roar, all the while maintaining a reverence for the fragility and the sheer beauty of what it means to be vulnerable and in love.

Tunnel Road – ANT ENOCH & MORETON
Everything that makes you feel,
makes me feel

With your arms around me
as I take the wheel, take the wheel

Can we take tunnel road home,
at the back of your house

Everything that makes you feel,
makes me feel
Little Lover,
Little Lover

Atwood Magazine is proud to be premiering “Tunnel Road,” Ant Enoch’s second career single (out March 15 via Berlin-baed label, Embassy of Music). Following this past January’s debut single “Television” and featuring fellow Aussie Moreton, “Tunnel Road” is the latest teaser off Ant Enoch’s forthcoming debut EP Big Talk Big Party, out May 17. The Sydney-based singer/songwriter continues his year of bold musical introductions with a cathartic confessional about love’s magnetic, majestic, and empathetic force: Nothing makes us feel the way our loved one does. All those who’ve known love can surely relate to the line “Everything that makes you feel, makes me feel.” We come to experience life through two sets of eyes, through two bags of bones.

And on “Tunnel Road,” the magic of that connection – and the complexities of love – are unpacked and processed in real time, as both artists contemplate what it means to love someone so intensely that you seem to step into their bodies.

Everything that makes you feel, makes me feel
Young forever try to spin the wheel, spin the wheel
Can we take tunnel road home, take the corners too fast
Everything that makes you feel, makes me feel

“In relation to the EP [Big Talk Big Party, out in May], amongst all those tunes being written about loss and trying to find myself in some way, this is the first song that I’ve arrived with pure, new, fresh love,” Enoch tells Atwood Magazine.

“It was one-on-one the feeling that I had in that moment, and then trying to just transcribe that. That’s where the lyrics came: ‘Everything that makes you feel, makes me feel.’ In a nutshell, that is what the song is about: Going on a road trip with your loved one. It’s a romantic love song. It was also probably the most terrifying part of my whole life when this song was being written. So much of that was about exposing myself to a love that I’d never felt before, and so for me this duality of ‘Tunnel Road’ is what this experience was like: It’s yearning, it’s this feeling of being in love, but also being terrified because you’re so open, so vulnerable.”

Bright silver lights
Turn the headlights on
We’re shining bright
In spite of it all
No looking down
Let the love break the fall
Everything is honest now
Everything is honest now

It’s a romantic love song… So much of that was about exposing myself to a love that I’d never felt before.

For Moreton, making this song together was particularly special because it gave the pair a chance to express themselves through their shared emotional outlet, together. 

“There’s the danger of when you are that connected to someone that you feel their feelings and it no longer feels like it’s just you because if you’re hurting, they’re going to hurt too, and that is dangerous and high stakes,” she adds.

“Love’s a risky business and it’s not always comfortable to be in big highs and really big lows, you know. There’s so many layers to falling in love. You know why? Because it’s so hard to fall out of love. We all know once you’re in it, it’s very hard to get back out of it.”

There’s nothing wrong
With falling in love
There’s nothing wrong
It’s only the cost of loving you
Everything that makes you feel, makes me feel
(Everything that makes you feel, makes me feel)

There’s so many layers to falling in love. You know why? Because it’s so hard to fall out of love. We all know once you’re in it, it’s very hard to get back out of it.

As Ant Enoch and Moreton express so powerfully through “Tunnel Road,” love is provocative, profound, and unavoidably all-consuming.

The pair create their own intoxicating heat on this special song, inviting audiences everywhere to bask in the glow of their growing love, and all the ecstasy, euphoria, dread, and inner churn it creates. Complex and confounding as these feelings may be, we’re ultimately left with a visceral sense of comfort and catharsis as we wind down “Tunnel Road,” resolving to surrender ourselves to love as Ant Enoch gives himself to his partner.

There’s nothing wrong with falling in love,” he concludes. “There’s nothing wrong; it’s only the cost of loving you.” That’s a price we’ll always pay.
