The start of “Tourist” reminds us of “My Number” by Foals. The quick-twitch guitar hooks the attention of the listener. Then, it’s up to the vocals and song structure to maintain that attentiveness. Both songs succeed, but from different structural directions.
“Tourist” is the handiwork of French Leave. The band is based in Leicester, UK. The members are Chris Reid (vocals, guitar), Steve Jordan (guitar), Ben Phipps (bass), and Oliver Martin (drums).
