Idiot Glee – “I Don’t Feel Right”

a1624139790_10Steady Doo-Wop Pop

November 20th, 2015 – Hop Hop Records

[Released Ahead of Upcoming LP, Idiot Glee – Out January 29th, 2016]

“I Don’t Feel Right” is the second single released by Idiot Glee in anticipation of the upcoming self-titled LP to be released next Friday. The song establishes a steady groove with only drums and guitar before a rich texture of bass and synths lead us into the verse. Lyrically, the track feels very personal, with Friley wishing that he hadn’t made his mom worry, revealing secret fears, and admitting of course “I don’t feel right.” It’s a song that becomes somehow sadder but more comfortable upon multiple listens – it’s honest, it’s exposed, but it’s confident and strong. Gorgeously produced like “Evergreen Psycho,” the sonic highlight of the song comes when the psychedelic, doo-woppy wave of synthesizers, drum machines, and “why don’t I” crashes into the second half of the song. “I Don’t Feel Right” should not only satisfy the long-time Idiot Glee fan, it should serve as a bridge and a pleasant step forward towards what’s in store on the rest of the upcoming Idiot Glee. 

You can expect Idiot Glee in its entirety next Friday, January 29th from Hop Hop Records, and make it to the release show at Al’s Bar that night at 9:00 PM.
