With the release of their celebrated fourth album BOY CRIED WOLF (BMG) last month, UK’s perennial altpop songsmiths THE FEELING have returned to the US with a resounding amount of applause. Already deemed as "the album of their career" by their home country’s seminal publications Q and Sunday Times, Boy Cried Wolf has created quite a stir across the pond. Coinciding with the release, the band released a video trilogy for UK singles "Rescue," "Blue Murder" and  "Fall Like Rain" telling an abstract tale of alienation, life and surviving.

Heralding the US release, Idolator proclaimed, "The fourth time has proved to be a charm for the UK quartet." Baeble said that "If [lead singer Dan Gillespie-Sells] could reach another half octave he’d be the next Freddy Mercury." In its overwhelmingly positive review, My Social List marveled how the "myriad of rich and textured instrumental passages" created by all five members place "emphasis firmly on the transformative power of words and music combined", capturing exactly what makes Boy Cried Wolf so special.

Written, recorded, and produced on their own, The Feeling were able to create the album on their own terms and the result is not only a return to form for the band who was the #1 played artists on UK radio in 2006 but a second breakthrough with this widely-celebrated album. Looking back to the making of Boy Cried Wolf, Gillespie-Sells says that the best thing about it was that "we were just in our little bubble again. There was this sense that there wasn’t any pressure on us now to be anything other than what we are." Combining emotional urgency with the sheer joy of a huge hook has always been the calling card of the best soft-rock; with their new album, the Feeling give great feels.

"The album of their career, ****" – Q
