How Do You Feel?

Album: Lovely Little Lonely (2017)

Songfacts®:

  • This is the closing track of The Maine's Lovely Little Lonely album. Vocalist John O'Callaghan told Nylon magazine:

    "If you're at all familiar with any of the closing tracks on most of earlier albums, you'll notice that we have a tendency to go for the more anthemic and drawn-out vibe to wrap up records. On LLL, we wanted to deviate from that tendency and close with something up. My hope is that 'Feel' leaves the listener with an open-ended question of introspection and reflection."
  • The song's music clip depicts the band performing the song on a variety show stage in matching ensembles.

    "This video was inspired by both the Beatles on Ed Sullivan and The Animals video for 'House Of The Rising Sun.' Simplicity and aesthetic in mind, but really placing the focus on the track," John O'Callaghan told Bandsintown. "The weirdo 8mm vibe and trippy edits were all an homage to the early psych movement, and for me helped make the performance aspect of the video more interesting visually. Hyped on the way it all came out!"
