More music from Brisbane’s Tourism, who we covered earlier this year. Their single “Horses Back” was a favorite of mine for some time, and the same can now be said about their recently released track “City Never Sleeps.”
You can feel a significant Brit-pop influence throughout their music, since brothers James and Joe Wisniewski relocated from the UK. Their British accents and the characteristic Brit-pop change of tempo combine nicely with the tropical guitar riffs, which are becoming synonymous with Australian indie pop. It’s a very likeable mix – think the Kooks crossed with fellow Brisbane band Last Dinosaurs.
With a new EP set for release in the coming months, Tourism are set to unleash their unique hybrid style on the mostly unsuspecting public – make sure you’re prepared!
