Biography

After infinite discussions concerning aesthetics, lyricism and musical preferences, “Terrible Feelings” was chosen as the most fitting name for this musical outfit, which saw the light of day sometime late summer 2009, in Malmö, Sweden. Whilst the band may have its origins in an eternally blossoming punk scene, Terrible Feelings represents so much more than that.

With music and lyrics rooted in 70s devil-worshipping hard rock and 80s spleeny new wave, Terrible Feelings play a sophisticated and gloomy mixture of power pop and punk.

After having been biding time for the majority of 2009 and 2010, the band released not one, but three singles in 2011, on both European and North American shores. With over 4000 copies sold and a booming fans crowd is the expectations for the debut album higher than they could ever have imagined. In 2011 they also completed three European tours and with an album in their back can they tour more than ever. Terrible Feelings has among other things shared stage with bands like Jeff the Brotherhood, Yussuf Jerusalem and got hand-picked by Fucked Up as opening band on their shows in Scandinavia last fall.

2012 will see the release of “Shadows”, Terrible Feelings’s debut full length. It will be released via Double Sun (imprint of Adrian Recordings), Sabotage Records in Europe and Deranged Records in North America. The album was recorded at Tambourine Studios in their hometown, in January 2012. Co-producer Erik Sunding spurred them to use more than ten different guitars and amps, a quirky violin bass played over a massive amp from the 70s, old beat up drums, farfisa, hammond, piano and tons of rippling percussion. The outcome is twelve quite different songs, somehow all tied together by a common notion; walking hand in hand towards a bleak future. For those with a weakness for melancholic yet danceable punkrock, this record might just prove to be an essential staple in any collection.
