The Lilac Hour’s Feeling Again

London-based alt rock band The Lilac Hour‘s latest single is ‘Feeling Again’ due out on 23rd February, via Flip Flop Records.

The song’s taken from their upcoming EP, for release this year, produced by Tom Anderson at Kempston Street Studios in Liverpool, where Blossoms and Coldplay recorded many of their early works. Listeners may feel this sound comes through in the production of ‘Feeling Again’, with strong lead synth and guitar lines throughout. The song details a longstanding relationship breaking down, but is punctuated with euphoric choruses as the participants take relief from the relationship’s increasingly rare enjoyable moments.

The Lilac Hour is a London-based indie rock band. Lead singer and rhythm guitarist, Jake McCollum, lead guitarist Matt Davies-Saunders, bassist James Katz and drummer Matt Volpato combine to produce the kind of energetic riffs and intricate melodies which pay homage to artists as diverse as Sam Fender, Declan McKenna, Nothing But Thieves and Blossoms.

Lead singer and rhythm guitarist, Jake McCollum, bassist James Katz and drummer Matt Volpato are said to produce energetic riffs and intricate melodies that pay homage to artists as diverse as Muse, Nothing But Thieves, Royal Blood and Sam Fender.

The Lilac Hour formed at university where they discovered that the melodic supremacy of ABBA and Fleetwood Mac kept creeping into their grungy riffs.

The band’s early demo tracks wracked up several thousand streams on Spotify and they released their eponymously named debut EP in September 2023, and last summer they brought out the single ‘People on TV’, via Bread & Butter Records.

‘People on TV’ delves into the universal longing for recognition and success, shedding light on the potential challenges that accompany fame and fortune (or so we envision). With its unique blend of uplifting and melancholic vibes, in time for summer.

‘Feeling Again’ is available here. Their earlier debut single ‘Call Me‘ was described as a powerful rock ballad that paints a picture of nostalgia and melancholy that fully immerses the listener.
