London DIY punk trio FEATURE have unveiled the creepy new video for ‘Wisdom Teeth’; directed by Maria Cecilia: Maria says, “When I was approached to make a video for Feature, the band asked me if I could make it about “Jen’s weird hands doing things”. Basically it’s an in-joke taken a bit too far, something I’m always going to get behind. I really wanted to add some old school effects – making it a quite absurd and surreal without being too serious. Also apparently it’s almost the exact same set up as the the Disney film Frozen? Haha. Oops.”
The band say of the video, “Jen’s twiglet fingers are a constant source of wonder to us; They’re always there in the corner of our eye, resting majestically on objects, creeping across tables or wrapped around drumsticks. We felt now was their time to shine”.
Feature are a punk band from London. Having already released two EP’s (‘Memory’ on Cazenove Tapes in 2012, and the acclaimed ‘Culture of the Copy’ on Tye Die Tapes in early 2014), they joined up with tour buddies Slowcoaches for the ‘Tourists’ split EP, which gets a cassette release on April 27th via Unwork Records (COP, USA Nails, Los Cripis, Major Malfunction).
Last month, a compilation of both EPs came out on Brisbane label Ruined Smile, and the trio have releases on Art For Blind and Soft Power Records later this year, as well as currently writing an album, due 2016. The band did a session for Marc Riley on BBC 6 Music last year, plus a Bowlegs session, and have supported the likes of Protomartyr, Cheatahs, Mazes, TRAAMS, Joey Fourr, Verity Susman and Chain and the Gang. Jen also plays in Sauna Youth and Monotony, Heather also plays in Slowcoaches and Human Form. Liv feels lazy.
