Urgent and infectious, The Feed return with sophomore album, Outsider, a collection of scuzzed out jams that rock like T. Rex at a Spoon concert, but with the lofi feedback of a Strokes album. And after a 3 year hiatus, their return couldn’t come soon enough.
The fourpiece burst back onto the scene earlier this year premiering lead single, “Rexy,” on Filter Magazine, who sang praises of their erratic and “ impressive” selfdescribed soul punk. The band were quick to follow with second single and title track, “Outsider,” on Alternative Press, who boasted that they “blend classic motifs with fuzz and modern energy to create their frantic rock.” Hype surrounding the band has continued to escalate, features in the likes of The Blue Walrus, Diffuser.fm, PopStache, KDHX, and Earmilk.
Born amidst the midwest’s burgeoning rock scene and set against the backdrop of their hometown, St. Louis, the fourpiece originally came together in 2006 with a three man line up. Led by frontman David Grelle on keys and accompanied by Kevin Bowers on drums and Ben Reece on bass and saxophone, the band released their self titled debut EP in 2007, and toured with the likes of Ben Folds, Chuck Berry and The Roots to name a few.
