There are rumblings on the horizon. The kind of rumblings that signal a wave of feedback and pounding drums, all of which are courtesy of London based three-piece Feature and their long time cohorts Slowcoaches. Both bands have gleefully colluded to produce the six track Tourists EP, set for release on 15 September through Bandcamp. The EP will feature two new tracks and a Wire cover from each band, and the first taste of the upcoming release has appeared courtesy of Feature.
Their track ‘Tourism Fiction’ sets a sinister tone as shredded guitars stop and start over thumping, staccato beats before the whole thing breaks out into an impossibly catchy chorus. It’s got to be the lo-fi earworm of the year and an indication that the forthcoming split is going to be something well worth gracing your stereo with.
Feature and Slowcoaches are heading out on a double headline tour in support of the Tourists EP, so you too can witness them unleash a tidal wave of rad all over a town near you.
