still feel.

"‘still feel.’ was never supposed to be a 70s-inspired, electro-halftime-chorus jam complete with a highly-choreographed music video." That's what it is, though.

I just heard this today, through NPR's All Songs Considered, and immediately added it to my playlist! Great song, thanks for the link to the video!

I saw this video recommended on youtube the other day but I skipped it for whatever reason, definitely going to give it another shot now.

That's clearly early-80's-inspired.

One of those rare songs that I can sing along to before I've even listened to it all the way through once. I particularly love the strings and brass sections that come in at the end.

Not bad. I'll just toss it on top of the pile.

Oh, I LOVE LOVE LOVE this. (And this definitely has some Boz Skaggs in it, so mid-70s for sure, mixed in with 21st century indie.)

God, I'm finding cool stuff in the weirdest places lately. I've just about given up on As It Happens, but I was tuned in to the end of it a few weeks ago and heard something Fall-esque that Shazam totally choked on. Googling the lyrics finally led me to New Calm Pt. 2 by Ought, and then Tim Darcy's solo stuff.

Absolutely love it. I hear a little bit that reminds me of OK GO.

I loved this, thanks!

Yeah, the video definitely has an OK Go vibe. Same choreographer?
posted by davejay at 11:03 PM on September 13, 2018

No, the choreography in this was done by JA Collective, as it says in the video info, while OK Go's early A Million Ways and Here It Goes Again, and several of their other videos, were choreographed by Trish Sie, who is the frontman's sister.

That being said, I also was reminded of early OK Go videos. Though, now that I've watched them again, they are less similar than I felt.

This is by turns corny, infectious, cliquey and glorious. I love it.

Thank you Sokka shot first! Once again MeFi has given me my new favorite band!

Loved this, led me to look for more music by them. Enjoy their other songs as well. Was really disappointed when I realized they don't have a full album yet.

I meant I thought the sound reminds me a little bit of OK Go. Either way, I really love it.
