Home > Featured > Without Motion: Navigating the Abyss with Feral Family

In the swirling vortex of guitar riffs akin to intergalactic wormholes and the relentless pulse of pneumatic rhythms, “Sold” emerges as the electrifying new anthem from the rebellious minds of Bridlington’s own antagonists, Feral Family.

Jamie Lowe’s cutting vocals, dripping with sarcasm and rapid-fire wit, take center stage in this relentless critique of the relentless grind of existence in today’s fractured Britain. “Sold” encapsulates the sensation of life being consumed by the demands of work, morphing from mere survival to a relentless cycle where work becomes the sole purpose of existence—a sentiment undoubtedly resonating with many.

With their debut album, “Without Motion,” looming on the horizon, Feral Family offers a tantalising glimpse into their world—a world where conformity is shattered, and authenticity reigns supreme. Through 11 tracks of blistering intensity, the band navigates the tumultuous waters of adolescence, adulthood, and everything in between.

From the harsh realities of adulthood laid bare in “Cairo” to the introspective journey of “This Side of Me,” Feral Family doesn’t shy away from the gritty truths of life. They explore uncharted territories of love, loss, and societal disillusionment with unflinching honesty, painting a vivid portrait of a seaside town teeming with complex characters and tangled relationships.

Yet, amidst the album’s raw confessions, there are moments of surrealism and dark humour. Tracks like “Wee Van Bee” transport listeners to a spaghetti western-inspired landscape, while “Spice King” delves into the psyche of a fallen empire from the confines of a prison cell.

Jamie Lowe himself describes “Without Motion” as a chronicle of their daily struggles and surreal imaginings—a guide through the highs and lows of late adolescence and early adulthood, as seen through their eyes.

From the thunderous opening of “Cairo” to the haunting echoes of “Someday,” Feral Family’s debut album is a sonic journey through the depths of post-punk, appealing to fans of luminaries like Joy Division, Interpol, and Nine Inch Nails. With each track pulsating with a raw, electric energy, Feral Family establishes themselves as torchbearers of a new era in indie rock—one where darkness and introspection reign supreme.
