Fea drops a monster of a single with visuals in the form of their new track titled ‘Itch’. A surf-Punk Riot Grrl with a tad bit of The Clash and fIREHOSE thrown in for good measure, Fea drops a soul bomb on the realities of touring and embrace the grit and grime of life on the road in the only way they know how: full throttle.
Fea is a trailblazing trifecta of Chicana Punk, Riot Grrrl ethos, and blistering musical prowess. Fea turns confessional and takes on a celebratory mood for new song/video “Itch”, a surf-punk-leaning look at the scuzzy glory of touring. Vocalist Letty Martinez points out, “We don’t glamorize touring in ‘Itch,’ because for us it’s never glamorous.

It’s dirty and smelly and uncomfortable and we love it—we always embrace the dirty.” Produced by LA punk legend Alice Bag, the San Antonio based band will release their sophomore album No Novelties, this Friday on Joan Jett’s Blackheart Records. Leading up to release, the band previously shared social media-critical lead single “Let Me Down” and paid homage to Día de Muerto with “Ya Se”, injecting Spanish-sung gang vocals into a cathartic middle-class anthem. The band is currently on a Texas wide tour with stops in Austin, Dallas, Houston + more.
