We present to you today the title track taken from French duo Pierre Leroux and Victor Le Masne aka Housse de Racket's first album in three years, The Tourist. Out on 30th October via Kus Kus / !K7 Records, it arrives after their 2011 effort, Alesia.

'The Tourist' is an energetic if slightly melancholic foray into a world of crunchy electronics, dancing syncopated melodies, and dejected guitars, all of it kinetic and swirling around a foundation of buzzing bass and a hypnotising four-to-the-floor beat, low-key vocals painting a picture of the life, or mindset, of the eponymous tourist. Or seemingly all tourists – speaking about the inspiration behind the song, the duo themselves said:

"This song and the whole album were entirely recorded into Pierre's apartment, located in Montmartre, right opposite the Sacré-Coeur. We just had to look out the window to find inspiration among selfie-stick people and the hypnotic force of the iconic church. It's the first song we wrote for this album and we immediately knew it was the right starting point."
