Tennessee rockers The Features
garnered mild fame a few years ago opening for fellow Nashville citizens Kings of Leon
in the Kings' U.S. heyday. The Features never really took off but they've been putting out more music and have some really great songs, plus a seriously incredible live show. The band's signature sound is a desperately soulful power-pop with a forceful but slow, focused intensity. The song "Lions" off the album Some Kind of Salvation
is a semi-dark track that alternates between fervent-yet-calm somber passages and raucously yelled, wordless choruses. Be sure to turn the volume waaaay up for full effect when you check it out after the jump.
