The View - Feels Like

It's hard to believe it's really been 8 years since the last record from The View. Reconvening after five years apart, the band have returned with a track that's every little bit triumphant as it is nostalgic. Picking up where they left off, they waste no time in unleashing catchy melodies and soaring choruses just like they used to. Frontman Kyle Falconer says, "Working with Youth on our third album 'Bread and Circuses' was one of the best experiences of my career so we jumped at the chance to revisit the opportunity with him in Spain. To be able to go into the studio again as a band with added experience was just magical." Continuing, Kyle adds, "This one felt anthemic from the get go. Even though under the surface it’s about somewhere everyone’s been in their life before: regret of losing someone amazing due to your inner demons and seeing them moving on with their life, when you’re stuck in a ‘nightmare not a dream.’ When I first sat down to write it I had Holden Caulfield from ‘Catcher in the Rye’ in mind. It’s playing out in his mind and it’s his own paranoia destroying him from the inside out when in reality she’s the perfect woman." Take a listen for yourselves below. The View's new album ‘Exorcism of Youth’ will be released on June 9th via Cooking Vinyl.
