There isn't a shred of doubt that Tourist's latest single "Avalanche" is brimming with musical opulence... But what remains to be fascinating is how he continuously marries technical ability while channeling deep emotions into his work.

The atmospheric and somewhat dramatic intro contains the makings of what you'd expect in a Tourist track, although where it gets interesting is the rhythm section as the Garage-inspired drums begin to lead the groove in a raw manner. I can't neglect to mention how the arrangement of the beefy bassline compliments the shimmer in the distance thanks to the lead synth that's drenched in reverb. This is the second single from the UK producer's upcoming album Inside Out set for release May 20th.
