Bristol-based trio Elder Island have returned with their first new release of 2020 "Feral", which also lands with the b-side "Absolute".

"Feral" and "Absolute" are the trio's first new tracks since last year's debut album The Omnitone Collection, with "Feral" also providing a first taster of their second album due for release next year.

Bassist Luke Thornton says of "Feral", "It's got a driving aggressive sound that's quite dark, and then this light bossa nova beat that goes along with it. The song is inspired by childhood memories of fear, so the track has become a juxtaposition between darkness and light."

Elder Island's "Feral" and "Absolute" songs are both out now. Their second album is due for release next year, but is yet to be announced.
