The Feelies

About The Feelies

Of the countless bands to emerge from the New York City underground during the post-punk era, few if any were as unique and influential as the Feelies; nerdy, nervous, and noisy, even decades later their droning, skittering avant-garde pop remains a key touchstone of the American indie music scene. Named in reference to Aldous Huxley's prescient science-fiction novel Brave New World, the group released their debut album in 1980. Crazy Rhythms is a true cult classic, and in retrospect had a huge influence on a wave of college rock and indie bands that came after them. The Feelies issued three more records, but broke up following 1991's Time for a Witness. The members of the band all continued to play music, and reunited in 2008 for additional tours and recordings.
