THE FEATURES album ‘WILDERNESS’ out on Sept the 14th.
The Features‘ exhilarating new album ‘Wilderness’ (Serpents and Snakes/BMG Rights Management) quickly establishes the Nashville-based combo as one of the most exciting and imaginative bands working today. Songs like ‘Another One‘ and ‘Fats Domino‘ are marvels of pop ingenuity, animated by vivid lyrics, unshakable hooks, and experimental soul. ‘Wilderness’ is an amalgamation of influences and inspirations – spanning elements of Krautrock, indie, psychedelia, and classic AOR – to conjure up The Features’ own inimitable, indescribable sound. The album (released on Kings of Leon’s label, Serpents and Snakes, a venture with music publisher, BMG Rights Management), follows 2009’s acclaimed ‘Some Kind Of Salvation’ . ‘Wilderness’ was produced with Brian Carter, who recorded their 2003 release, ‘The Beginning’ – EP, and engineer Craig Alvin at Carter’s Paradox Productions Recording Service in Nashville, Tennessee. Since releasing ‘The Beginning’ – EP in 2003, The Features have assembled quite the catalog of accomplishments, spanning single releases on the UK’s trendsetting Fierce Panda label, two well-received albums, and a long history of tours as headliners as well as supporting such like-minded artists as their pals Kings of Leon. As ‘Wilderness‘ demonstrates, the spirit of musical adventure continues to both define and motivate The Features. With ‘Wilderness‘, The Features have crafted yet another exceptional installment in what is shaping up as quite the impressive body of work. Ever evolving and always ambitious, this is a band in it for the long haul. The Features can’t imagine it any other way. The Features will be playing Café Video in Gent on September 19th !
