Go wild for Feral Children


BRAND New Blood is an apt name for Feral Children's introductory album - because the newcomers' new LP is refreshingly heartfelt.
The rural rockers, who hail from Washington state, have crafted a wonky collection that sounds like Grizzly Bear being mauled by a grizzly bear on this, their second album - a superb mixture of timeless pop and indie rock as raw as an open wound.
And every note of stand-out tracks like Kid Origami, Castrato and On A Frozen Beach is intensely meant by the band.
This primal intensity does lead the band awry at times, but you can excuse these wild blips from Feral Children - it's what makes them so fiercely different, and totally intriguing.
