New additions to the Australian hip hop scene FEELS have hit the ground running with the release today of their debut single “Jungle”.
A downbeat pairing of minimalist electronics with subtle acoustic guitar, the emotional tale of loss tugs at the heartstrings while showcasing the lyrics and flow of two of the scene’s most promising artists.
FEELS pairs Australian producer and vocalist Ryan Jordan (AKA Rahjconkas) and songwriter Dane Kennedy. The duo first met in their home town of Wagga Wagga with their first studio session convincing the pair to work together to create a new blend of soul based hip-hop with a modern twist.
Songwriter Dane Kennedy first found his love of penning music growing up in the remote community of Ivanhoe in Western NSW. Growing up with musician Grandparents, it wasn’t until recent years that a well-respected Aboriginal Elder Cedric Briggs gave Dane his prized guitar with the words “My old fingers can’t play this anymore. Make good use of it”. That gesture set him on a path of self-discovery, learning and following his muse to create the unique acoustic soul he brings to FEELS.
‘Jungle’ is the first taste of FEELS debut EP slated for 2016 with touring to follow.
