Felt Tip are set to release their second single Milk & Honey on 24 February via Fierce Panda/Giant Haystacks.
Felt Tip are a band who have spent the past six months foregoing the perilous delights of the facebook and twitter world and therefore floating around the indie ether in a fug of mystery. What we know is that Felt Tip has three members and that English bassist and drummer duo James Tyler and Tom Rapanakis met volatile French guitarist Anton Trampon in London after he left an ad in their studio listing Television, Ennio Morricone and “everything at DFA Records” as influences.
The London indie/new wave popsters follow up their debut single Love or Pity with 6Music-infiltrating second outing, Milk & Honey.
Milk & Honey features vocals that resemble those of Brandon Flowers, making this a song that Killers’ fans may well like. While Love Or Pity showcased vocals similar to Julian Casablanca meeting Jeff Buckley, Milk & Honey has another sound altogether – it’s slightly darker and more sincere. In fact, it almost feels like an insult to call this band indie – their style is much more advanced than this.
Milk & Honey will be released on 24 February via Fierce Panda/Giant Haystacks.
