Inspired by the Tour de France, Electricity for Everybody! has released “Tourmalet,” the lead single from their upcoming full-length, Local Technique.
The Col du Tourmalet, a peak in the French Pyrénées, has featured over 80 times in the Tour de France since 1910. The Tourmalet climb is iconic—an extreme test of the riders’ ability and belief.
“Tourmalet” celebrates the propulsive rush faced by high-mountain cyclists, compressing their gruelling task into four pop-riddled minutes. The pounding rhythm and weaving guitars set a furious pace, driving until the tires pop.
