Brisbane band Tourism are a four-piece consisting of two British brothers and 2 of their close friends. They make music that is lyrical, upbeat and lighthearted.
The new single, City Never Sleeps, is an upbeat pop track with a strong British accent. Lyrically this is definitely not a track that takes itself too seriously and it is a lot of fun. The single has been released as part of the General Pants Co.’s Major Label initiative.
Major Label is a pioneering new singles record label owned entirely by General Pants Co. and aimed at discovering unsigned Australian acts. The label stays away from controlling artist creativity, doesn’t own their copyright and pays out to the acts 100% of royalties generated from the online sales of the singles.
City Never Sleeps is a song that is definitely catchy and it will hook you! You can stream it on the Major Label page if you would like to listen.
Tourism are holed up in the studio recording an EP with Sean Cook, who has worked with Yves Klein Blue, which is due for release later this year. Until that time City Never Sleeps will remain a happy accompaniment to every activity.

My blurb went missing… so now I have to bring you a new one. One that is a little broader too.
I devour books, vampires and supernatural creatures are my genre of choice but over the past couple of years I have broadened my horizons considerably.
I inhale music, hair metal that satisfies my inner bogan is where my musical passion lies, but again I’ve been exposed to lots of different music I wouldn’t normally listen to and have broadened those horizons also.
In a nutshell – I love to write! I love interacting with a diverse range of artists to bring you interviews.
Perhaps we were perfect before – I LOVE WORDS! Reading, writing, speaking, listening – if it’s got words I’m there!
