About The Feelings
There's something wondrously hi-fi about the Feelings' Lo-Fi craft. Massive drum machine beats mingle with hauntingly striking Casiotone and phantom-like cello parts, as all the while a telephone-like voice narrates coolly...but not too coolly. The best part is the manner in which the band innovates dynamics. They do so with texture and melody rather than volume and relationship trouble, creating percussive, sunny verses that give way to twilit water droplets of synth and heartbroken, truly bittersweet melody. Within the Feelings' production and melody exist these perfect contradictions, making their songs sound simultaneously simple yet sophisticated, fractured yet cohesive, and cool without trying to be.
