Single Review: Feeder – ‘Borders’

2 min read

Welsh rock favorites Feeder return to the forum with the brand new epic single Borders this month and as the band begin the build up to their highly anticipated new record we get a taste of what’s to come with the bands latest offering.

FeederBordersWith some flavorsome vocal wailing over-top a rhythmic backdrop quite reminiscent of a laid back Kings of Leon we are gently introduced to Borders, the latest single release by the Welsh alternative rockers.

Borders is the first track to be taken from the bands forthcoming eighth studio record Generation Freakshow which hits stores in late March.

With a melody that kicks like a horse drunk on Redbull the track is very syrupy but not to the degree of being a sell-out single for the threesome who are more famous for their post grunge and indie outings than bouncy pop infused hits like this latest single. The band remain true to their rock roots despite the commercial pop feel to the single.

The track is catchy and instantly clings to the memory banks as we are taken through a meaty three and a half minutes of rolling drums, uptempo hooks and a memorable chorus that sits confidently within the track as front man Grant Nicholas belts out some sturdy vocals over the singles run-time.

In their 20 years together Feeder have sold an impressive 5 million records ans racked up a staggering 25 singles and with the bands forthcoming release, fronted by this catchy lead single, that figure is set to rise as the boys take on the charts yet again with this positive and ear grabbing new release.
