London-based indie misrerabilists Useless Cities return with new track How To Feel. Following a spate of shoegaze releases, this song is more on the alternative/indie side of the musical spectrum. It is produced by Paul Tipler (Placebo/The Horrors/Idlewild).
The song is steered with a rugged guitar line, male/female vocals and a heavy dose of reverb. The atmosphere slowly builds before entering a heavier breakdown section which builds again to an intense crescendo of piano and post-punk guitar.
Veering between indie, post-rock and post-punk elements, the bands’ influences of The Cranberries, The National and Interpol are apparent.
The band have said “It is about the beginning of a new relationship when you are trying to engage the feeling part of your heart. The thought of it all working out, despite reservations is a nice dream. Well, we all need to have hope…”
