If you’ve been listening to our Nu Qu playlist, you may have stumbled across a funky, ’80s-inspired electronic pop single from the UK’s Reece Lemonius.
The song, “Something I Can Feel,” was the second selection from his June EP “Midnight.” It’s been the most successful track from the project so far, raking in nearly 80,000 streams on Spotify since its release.
It’s easy to understand why the song landed so well with people. Filled with synthesizers and jangly guitars, coated in modern EDM sounds, bolstered by a tight, funky bass line, and finished with a ripping guitar solo, “Something I Can Feel” is 70% early The 1975 song and 30% club banger.
Lyrically, the song discusses the feeling of being stuck in a routine and desperately looking for some sense of feeling. Its theme of longing for something to bring liveliness to an otherwise dull and numbing daily grind hits especially hard in 2020.
Overall, this is a very good track that would be a great addition to anyone’s music library.
