The Features Have 'Another One' and Hit the Road

The Features recently released the new single "Another One" from their album Wilderness, on Kings of Leon's Serpents and Snakes label. The band is hitting the road in mid-September with dates crossing UK/Europe, then returning to the States for a Fall tour scheduled through November 1st including stops at L.A.'s fabled Troubadour, Austin City Limits Festival and Voodoo Music Experience in late October.  

Wilderness has established the Nashville-based combo as one of the most exciting and imaginative bands working today.  Songs like "How It Starts," which was featured in a national Ford Mustang Spot, "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.

"I feel like we walk this fine line," says singer/guitarist Matt Pelham. "We're not weird enough for a certain crowd and we're a little bit too out there for the other crowd.  We fall in the middle somewhere between mainstream and hipster, which puts us in this weird place, but we're all pretty happy to be here."
