Single Review: Wheels – ‘Feel About Me’

2 min read

Feel About Me is the brand new single for glossy indie collective Wheels who show off in a brief 4 minute stint how modern indie should sound and successfully leave a lasting impression of what is in-store with the bands forthcoming studio release.

WheelsFeelAboutMeThe band which consists of George Runciman (Vocals and Guitar), Yacob Andersen (Bass), Felix Howes (Guitar), and Stirling Mitchell (Drums), met through mutual friends and with their shared love of iconic acts including The Beatles and The Smiths helping to solidify the musical relationship between the foursome, Wheels was formed and the band themselves have become a staple in the resurgence of 90’s Brit-pop.

With the nostalgic Brit-pop sound easily comparable to acts such as Cast and Ocean Colour Scene flowing heavily throughout the number, Wheels are on the way towards a successful 2011 with the release of this gutsy release.

The track is an uplifting, guitar fueled monster for the indie/pop collective that combines a melodic backdrop of wailing and confident guitar work and an infectious chorus of hook laden indie bliss.

Frontman Runciman delivers the vocals for the track flawlessly as his fellow band members give him the sturdy support of riffs and drum rolls and an impressive guitar solo that has as much stadium appeal as other chart topping acts as Kings of Leon. Feel About Me has a commercial sound while still paying homage to the Brit-pop genre that that have adopted.
