There’s a sense of darkness that shimmers around the edges of melodic phrases. “Feel Good” arrives more as a note from a well-wisher, addressing a troubled friend. This isn’t a saccharine celebration. There’s a definite sense of issues that require negotiation There’s something to overcome before good times can be had.
The hookier elements of the track alternate between chopped-vocals, a guitar line, and a bass that doesn’t know where to quit. All aspects sound like a spotlight searching in darkness – shapes are found, discarded, and move ever-onwards. It’s great. At the centre of “Feel Good” lies a beat that breaks and undulates across the tune. The result is a groove that’s hard to deny.
Bonus for the gorgeous cover art.
