A Weekend At The Feelies

It’s fair to say that we’ve become quite big fans of Jordan Campbell’s languid new project, A Weekend At The Feelies, in recent months. Back in August, we brought you the
”echoey beauty of fragile synth highs and caressing bass lows” of “Lowly Buzzard” (which went on to get good support from Amazing Radio) and then his follow-up, the understated ray of arctic sunshine that was “Light”.

Last week he posted his latest track, “True North”, and it’s another gem. While it begins with a sparse and stark sounding beat, it soon gives way to the gentle melodies Campbell seems to be perfecting. Like those that have come before, it’s soft and calm, like a mountain lake at first light with not a ripple to be seen anywhere.

While aurally it is as delicate and soothing as his previous tracks, it is a lyrical hamster wheel, a lock in to all those poor life choices we make and feel compelled to live up to. The lyrics repeat and loop, four simple but elegant and meaningful lines spinning like the wheel on which we all run and struggle to jump from. There’s a subtle depth and profoundness to it that, if you stop and think about it, could make you reassess your life or turn to drink to wash away the pain. But it sounds gorgeous.

”True North” is available as a free download from the player below.”
