Feels – Post Earth (album review)

by Woody on February 25, 2019

On their sophomore album, Feels continues to find that sweet spot between punk and new wave. On the sludgy, dark title track; Feels paints the rare dystopian picture that will put a smile on your face. Billionaires are fleeing Earth after we completely turn our planet to shit before getting their just due towards the end.

That seems to be the central tenet here. Feels is pissed and they’re not enjoying the general apathy being shown. The track fires out of the gate with Car and its scuzzy guitar lick. Awful Need follows which has a Sleater-Kinnney feel to it, between the use of backing vocals and the stop ‘n’ go nature to the track. Sour, planted in the middle of the album, has this spacey new-wave feel to it as the band rails against the forces that profit of division.

Their debut was solid but wasn’t memorable for the long haul. Post Earth really propels the band forward in many ways.
