Off the coast of Kent, a mere 25 miles from London, is the Isle of Sheppey. It is here that the quartet that makes up Touriste formed their band, with brothers Sam and Kris Harris joining up with Rob Wilks and Mike Dove. Available as a download and on limited vinyl, "Battle On" is their debut release.
Though described on their website as being "huge" and "epic", Touriste fail to come across in such manner on this offering. The main track is monotonous indie that occasionally becomes wistful, but at no point does it enthral the senses. "Shannon's Cannon" isn't much to shout about either, with a piano line that Keane wouldn't use - it's like a soundtrack to the circus and doesn't impress.
