After debuting at a Midsummer Festival in 2016, New Feelings quickly became one of the most exciting names on the Stockholm indie scene. Before even releasing their first material the band's conceptual, engaging and unforgettable live shows impressed everything from underground venues to the city's larger rooms. Their shameless flirting with 80's aesthetics done with such perfection and irresistible charm has gained New Feelings a growing cult following. On April 13th, debut EP Introducing is released via Rama Lama Records (Steve Buscemi’s Dreamy Eyes, Melby, Chez Ali, Kluster etc.).
The quartet, which together have a impressive CV that includes acclaimed Stockholm garage bands such as Holograms, Lion's Den and IBV, formed New Feelings due to a shared love to influences such as Springsteen, Tina Turner, Devo, Dire Straits, Talking Heads and Pulp. Last April, the band self-released debut single If You Want Me To Dance alongside with a karaoke video, both the music and video spread a energy and joy that's so often lacking in the sometimes over-pretentious and introspective indie scene. The single received praise from influential national sources and is often played on underground venues and indie parties since.
New single and video Real Love was released in March and showed a more emotional side of the band and broadens New Feelings pop/rock spectrum. Olle Strandberg's dewy-eyed vocals combined with the stylistic instrumentation creates a soundtrack that every coming of age movie made yet unfortunately missed out on.
Introducing is New Feelings' first EP and contains singles Real Love and If You Want Me To Dance as well as two brand new tracks which creates a collection spreading from buzzard screeches to sax solos - all held together by New Feeling's clear and exciting concept. The tracks are produced by Konie (Les Big Byrd) and was recorded by Hannes Ferm (HOLY). The EP is released on Friday the 13th and will be available on all digital platforms and limited white vinyl via Stockholm label Rama Lama Records.
New Feelings consist of Olle Strandberg (vocals, guitar), Anton Strandberg (drums), Joel Tiger (bas) and Teodor Juel Eckerström (synth).
