"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

"It’s safe to say that this dark and dancey track [Brett] has officially burrowed its way into our hearts—and become an instant mainstay on our favorite playlists." NYLON

 
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. 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. Mixed by James Chapman aka Maps (Mute), fierce vocals command the pulsating beat on the swelling single “Feline”, a song focused on breaking the bonds of cultural gender identity. The “Feline” video is a psychedelic trip of surrealism. Check it out where it premiered with Blackbook today or HERE. We encourage you to post and share.

The duo has received widespread critical acclaim, among others finding a fan inM83 who wrote about them for USA Today as well as recently being dubbed a “Band You Need To See” by Billboard. There is a stunning androgyny to frontwoman Jennifer Pague's lyrics, style, behemoth vocals and empowered sexuality. Supported by the dynamic drumming of Adam Shumski, the band hits the road for an east coast tour following a national tour with Clap Your Hands Say Yeah. With stops at Firefly, Moontower and Harvey Milk Festivals as well as a date with White Reaper, be sure to catch them live and stay tuned for more news coming soon!
