Swedish four-piece Terrible Feelings seem to be causing a commotion wherever they go. I've read a lot about how good the band is on record and in concert, and to be honest on the evidence contained within this release it's a justified view indeed. When I first heard Terrible Feelings, not once did I.
Swedish four-piece Terrible Feelings seem to be causing a commotion wherever they go. I've read a lot about how good the band is on record and in concert, and to be honest on the evidence contained within this release it's a justified view indeed. When I first heard Terrible Feelings, not once did I think I'd end up comparing them to Vancouver's White Lung, but on repeated listens there are moments that match the intensity that the Canadian quartet also display in their music. In addition there is also that late 1970s edgy punk/new wave quality to the music which White Lung also has in its arsenal to enhance that comparison. The differences though would be in the late 1960s/early 1970s rock/garage/power-pop influences that I hear with Terrible Feelings, along with hints of surf guitar throughout. In fact, imagine Night Birds crossed with White Lung and you've got a better idea of what Terrible Feelings sound like.
