Australia’s Tom Stell, known by his artist name of Golden Features, is drumming up excitement for his forthcoming debut album.
Set to drop July 27, SECT promises to be just as stellar as its opening track, which Stell released July 13. “Always” opens with a gritty, dark atmosphere that carries the listener into a cacophony of bass, filtered vocals and mystery-filled synths, no doubt serving as a door to the rest of the album’s nine tracks.
“‘Always’ is the oldest track off the album,” Stell says of the song. “The demo was written in 2015 and it turned out to be the cornerstone of SECT’s whole aesthetic; Heavy, aggressive with a classic song structure underpinning it.”
Following SECT‘s release on the 27th, Stell will tour the album around Australia, starting with Hordern Pavilion on Aug. 11.
