As they release part two of their new album Absence, we got better acquainted with Finnish alt-pop trio feelswithcaps
With the release of Absence, Pt. 1 in 2009, Finnish alt-pop trio feelswithcaps showed that the act are continuing to develop and hone their melancholy and melodic sound, providing some of the most nuanced and thought-provoking work from their tenure as an act so far.
Fast-forward to May 29th 2020 and the second part of the album has been released. with colossally absorbing and memorable tracks such as ‘Big Things’ and ‘Bits & Pieces’ sure to become staples of their sound and live shows. Following this release and the long-awaited completion of what is now their latest LP Absence, we caught up with feelswithcaps and found out a little more about the album and the bands journey so far.
Who TF are feelswithcaps?
How long have you been making music?
Why do you make music?
What are your biggest influences?
What would you say has been your best moment so far?
Maybe when we went to the cabin to start working on our album a few years back, one evening we were in this barbecue hut and kind of quarreling about how to best make the fire and then we were laughing about a stupid joke and I peed my pants
Also it was great when we released the first single off this album, Drains, and it started getting lots of positive feedback, playlist additions and so on. It felt really rewarding, after having worked on the music for so long.
How would you describe your sound to somebody unfamiliar with it?
Dancing through melancholy landscapes. I also like how MTV described it, ”perfect pop to sad-dance to in your bedroom”.
What’s your dream ‘I’ve made it’ moment?
Haha we were once talking about this and I guess ended up with opening for Pharrell, on a tour in Australia.
But the dream is to just continue doing this and constantly growing, finding more audience, building what we’ve started.
We love the second part of your debut album, what more can you tell us about it?
What does the rest of 2020 have in store for feelswithcaps?
And finally, who is your biggest fan right now?
It’s a guy called Paul from Belgium. He’s been on all of our/my isolation IG-lives, even the really boring ones. He always sends a message when we have a new song out, telling us what his thoughs on it are. He’s really supportive and lovely. Thank you Paul!
