Frontman and all-round dapper gent Dan Gillespie Sells says he was inspired to begin work on The Feeling's 'stripped-back' fourth record as a response to what he called "psychotic and restless" radio. He told The Daily Star: "I can't listen to Radio 1 any more. I guess young people want that edgy music, but I never did even when I was young. That’s why our records sound the way they do."
The Feeling released their greatest hits compilation 'Singles (2006–2011)' this week, which includes all four of their Top 10 hits. The 'Turn It Up' hitmaker claimed, "I can still write a good melody, and that’s how the new songs sound so far — just voice and piano, really stripped back."
We'll put the glow sticks away for now then.
