With their sophomore album ‘Forward Motion Godyssey’ out next week (14th February), Chicago’s Post Animal are giving us the last sneak peek into what it will hold.
Presenting their sizzling new song ‘How Do You Feel’, which blends psych-influences with synth-pop stylings, the quintet - now made up of Dalton Allison, Jake Hirshland, Javi Reyes, Wesley Toledo, and Matt Williams following the departure of co-founder Joe Keery (of floppy hair and Stranger Things fame) - describe the song as exploring “the confusion and eventual acceptance of complicated emotions”.
The accompanying video was directed by Pooneh Ghana who says the visual “presents a story of having a dream, and the ups and downs of chasing it, but never giving up on it. It touches on the ideas of sheer ambition, self reflection, nostalgia, growing older, and how one may decide to approach their life in result of all this. It’s an epic internal journey—a godyssey, even!—for our main character, who wouldn’t and couldn’t do anything else with her life, even if it is a struggle, at times.”
