Feral Children have been ravaging stages from their hometown Seattle to SXSW with their ferocious live performances and unhinged indie rock and now their debut record, Second to the Last Frontier, will be released July 8 on Sarathan Records. The LP was produced by Scott Colburn (Arcade Fire, Animal Collective) and retains the cathartic, live energy – writhing and glistening with yelps, screams, buzzing guitars, dual drummers, intense keys, resonant melodies and an underlying tone of conflict and frustration.
“Spy/Glass House” is the first track from the record and launches into a frenzy almost right off the bat as a spiky guitar riff collides with vocalist/percussionist Jeff Keenan’s howling melodies. The song bursts at the seams with an eerie tension that pervades the entire record. You can download it here: http://sarathan.com/audio/feralchildren/FeralChildren-SpyGlassHouse.mp3
