Smoove & Turrell - I Feel Alive / Mr Hyde 7
15th June 2018
Smoove & Turrell’s second single from their album ‘Mount Pleasant’ is a double helping of uptempo dancers for those that like to shake it…
‘I Feel Alive’ is a tasty electro disco cut inspired by a hedonistic night in Paris. It’s the perfect blend of Smoove’s trademark groovy productions with Turrell’s sweet tones and honest relatable lyricism. Keys man - Mike Porter gets a chance to engage his synth collection as he and the rest of the band create a host of spacey sounds to form the backdrop of this catchy number.
On the B side is ‘Mr Hyde’ - a beast of a track that opens with energetic live drums and a killer guitar riff that form the backbone of a rocking tune that sees John Turrell manically singing through a distortion effect delivering the lines “I’m Jekyll and baby you need to hide” in a suitably menacing style…
Fusing garage rock, psyche, northern soul and pop sensibilities it’s a Frankenstein’s monster of a release that works on multiple levels with the lyrical subject matter.
