The Maccabees - Feel To Follow

The New Year has seen the anticipated arrival of some new material from The Maccabees, and the verdict = totally and utterly priceless, worth the wait.  Don’t know about you, but I’m on my twenty something playing of “Feel to Follow”;  i'm not sure if that’s down to the overall simple easy listening melodies and soft vocal arrangement, or the roaring end passage and damn right fun looking video that accompanies the track. From pressing play I danced in excitement (yes I was literally jumping up and down), anxiously waiting for the raw upbeat, cinematic sounding style The Maccabees do best. And without a doubt they didn’t disappoint; opening with a pretty simplistic vocal, taking off to funky guitar solos and drum bursts, making the perfect ending.  'Feel to Follow' even has that potential spark to be 10x bigger live, There really is nothing to dislike. A track which sails The Maccabees back into their high status, which will without a doubt set them up off for an amazing year.
