Brighton post-hardcore quartet I Feel Fine released their ten track album The Cold In Every Shelter via London based label Venn Records,. The group shared videos of their two previous singles from the LP, Selfsame and Elemenohpea earlier this year building up to their release. Formed in 2018, I Feel Fine brought guitarist Jack Holland of math-rock band The Yacht Club in 2019, strengthening their tantalising gang vocals and further layers of melancholic guitar riffs.
Here’s what Venn Records had to say about The Cold In Every Shelter
Building on the strong foundations set by their debut EP, I Feel Fine continue to deliver the nostalgically influenced alt-rock sound they tastefully pay homage to (think Crash of Rhinos, The Appleseed Cast, Algernon Cadwallader) while looking towards new and fresh textures, adding post-rock dynamics, subtle orchestral swirls and some alt-country inflections. Tying this together with super tight and muscular performances, there is no denying the sky-scraping ambition that this record exudes, whilst retaining the high energy and ultimately joyful euphoria of their live shows.
Leading the record’s sonic journey are these grandiose, heart-on-sleeve emo-punk melodies that are backed up by the painstaking honesty of guitarist Nathan Tompkins’ lyrics. But it’s how Nathan shares his vulnerabilities with the rest of his band mates to sing in unison that gives I Feel Fine this overwhelming sense of unity and brotherhood. Often harmonising and sometimes screamed, there is so much catharsis bubbling within these songs as we see the quartet morph together as one unit.
