Feels releases new single ‘Bad4me (feat. MISSY)
and reveals showcase times for SXSW
Following their single ‘Piha’, Feels releases ‘Bad4me (feat. MISSY)’ on International Women’s Day. Bad4me encapsulates Feels’s distinctive production style, coupled with a story of fierce desire for someone who is so wrong for you. Feels recorded this song with feature ‘MISSY‘, during their residency at The Red Bull Studios in Auckland, New Zealand.
Bad4me has a driving beat & a dark pool of harmony to dip your ears into. The lyrics & vocals from ‘MISSY’ are constantly building to a spacious & relatable hook, allowing generous room for the malevolent production forged by Feels.
The collaboration between Feels and MISSY came very naturally, the duo really clicked creatively as soon as they met at The Red Bull Studios:
“MISSY is also a producer, so working with her in the studio she understood how to compliment our production. The chord stabs in this track were so fun to put together with the vocals, I love how ‘on edge’ you feel listening back to it.” Elise says.
“We couldn’t believe how naturally this song came together, we could all relate to the tone of the lyrics and we were excited to be writing something darker than our usual stuff” Rosie says.
Following the release of ‘Bad4me’, Elise Reitze-Swensen and Rosie Taylor are going to blow audiences away at four SXSW showcase performances plus a special presentation where they’ll demonstrate their unique and ingenious style of electronic percussion.
Appearing on March 10, 12, 14, 15 and 16, Feels will be all over SXSW and there won’t be any excuse for missing what’s sure to be one of the most talked about music acts of the festival.
