The Welsh Brit pop indie rockers Feeder are back with their tenth studio album ‘Tallulah’ and busy touring too boot to delight fans. Following on from consecutive Top 10 albums with 2016’s ‘All Bright Electric’ and the 2017 ‘Best Of’, the band has experienced somewhat of a resurgence and now replete with renewed power on their latest release. And Tallulah’ is perhaps the band’s most creative yet also concise record, an album that takes real chances while remaining committed to their punk-edged melodies and crisp song construction.
Frontman Grant Nicholas says he ponders on how different it is being in a band in the ''social media age''. He also revealed that the tracks are written from the perspective of a ''female rock star'', although the lyrical content is based on his own experiences. Speaking about the concept for the album, Grant - who formed Feeder in 1994, with long-time bandmate Taka Hirose - said: ''Everybody in music who has some success has a fear of the bubble bursting. A lot of things that come with success aren't always positive. It also touches on being a band in the social media age. It's not just about being reviewed by a certain magazine anymore, it's about being reviewed by virtually anyone who wants to do so. It's a whole different world out there for everyone, of any age.''
Feeder have released the lead single 'Fear of Flying', which, like the rest of the 12-track LP, is ''classic Feeder'' but ''stripped-back''. Grant said: ''It's a classic Feeder record. I just write the songs which feel natural to me, and I have a vision of each of them in my mind like a short film. I wanted to make a lot of the songs really adaptable. I didn't want them to have be massively produced, I wanted them to also work in a stripped-back way.''
