Featuring The Features


IT ALWAYS helps to have friends in high places - the Kings Of Leon's own Jared Followill said of The Features: "They’re one of the best undiscovered bands in the world."
Now I can't possibly comment on that, as knowing what undiscovered bands sound like is rather like knowing what the sound of one hand clapping is, but I can say Some Kind Of Salvation isn't bad.
The Tennessee band are a poppier proposition than Kings Of Leon, who are releasing their second LP as the first release from their new label, and I would expect some of these songs to feature in a chart near you.
Because while they are muscling into a crowded marketplace, alongside acts like Local Natives and Cold War Kids, and while the album may not blow you away, there's a selection of singles in the likes of Lions and Wooden Heart to stake their claim as Princes Of Leon at the very least.
