Since its beginning, The Feeling Of Love evolved from a one-man-band playing minimal and nihilist garage blues with a no wave borrowing, to a trio still in the garage vibe but with more complexity and strong krautrock and psychedelic influences.
The band, mostly based in Metz (France), comes from the mind of Guillaume Marietta, who was joined by Seb Normal and Sebastien Joly for their first studio album released through Born Bad Records in april 2011.
DISSOLVE ME (also released on Kill Shaman Records in USA) is the band’s kraut space garage manifesto. Songs stretch out, the drums go more tribal, the synth hammers out his keys on an infinite highway, and the guitar gets lost in delay pedal’s fog.One thinks Suicide, Spacemen 3, The Velvet Underground, Can, Syd Barrett.
The record allows the band to reach a larger audience, to hit the stage of big festivals like Rock en Seine in Paris and to me critically acclaimed by the french media (front page of Telerama, press articles in Le Monde, les Inrockuptibles, Noise, Magic, Grazia, etc.) and had many reviews on U.S. and European blogs.
After countless shows all over Europe and two tours in U.S.A., sharing the stage with bands such as Ty Segall, Thee Oh Sees, White Fence, The Intelligence, Girls, Strange Boys etc., The Feeling Of Love will release early 2013 a new album titled REWARD YOUR GRACE.
Even if the songs keep their psychedelic and melancholic garage essence, the band re-think their music by exploring shoegaze and pop territories. REWARD YOUR GRACE is a much more light full records, more accomplish but never steady. Something between psyche pop balads and long sound tracks of trance disturbed by sonic blasts.
