Tourists - Alternative Pop Post-Punk Rock Indie Live Act in Torquay

Tourists Short Info

A blend of melodic, dreamy beach-pop with a darker, more sinister edge, Torquay five-piece Tourists combine elements of shoegaze and 80’s synth-pop with deeper-rooted post-punk influences. Following a successful 2016, the band played a live showcase for BBC Introducing and a gig for BBC Radio 1’s The Academy. Their previous single Cut and Run landed in Spotify’s Global Viral 50 earning over 500,000 hits, with following singles Quiet Room and Drive becoming favourites among top music taste-makers. The band released their latest single Masquerade in early 2017 and played at Glastonbury Festival on the BBC Introducing stage later that year.

“Stunning… Endless layers of dreamy, melodic bliss” BBC Introducing

“Tourists are in fine form at the moment… I saw them at the Radio 1 Academy in Exeter and they were awesome.” Huw Stephens, BBC Radio 1

“The rise of indie-popping, dream-synth music has been inspired of late… The genre was honed by the likes of Foals and Hurts, but now it is time for the world to take note of Torquay-based visionaries Tourists.” Candid Magazine

"The Torquay-based five-piece have a knack for dreamy beach pop with a sinister edge, ‘Cut and Run’ merging a patchwork style with giant, sky-reaching guitar lines and arty intentions". DIY
