Our new track this week comes from Tourists, who have released their first single in two years in the form of Align.
Speaking about why Align was the right track to return with, Tom Wilkinson of the band says:
“[Align] follows the idea of somebody mastering their own inner spirit to command others. We feel this track really reflects our main musical influences – the deep-rooted post-punk element coupled with 80s synth/dark-pop. As we played it more it took on a life of its own, getting heavier with more dynamics, and a dramatic, driving ending.”
