The Feeling Of Love

I discovered The Feeling Of Love while listening to the video channel on Kill Shaman. They're a psych/punk trio from the city of Metz, France. I can't understand most of the verbiage in their bio, other than the fact that they are a French counterpart to bands like The Intelligence, Ty Segall, Strange Boys, Black Lips, etc. I don't have to speak French to realize the fact that The Feeling Of Love are in love with the Velvet Underground. Which is cool, because I am too.

The Feeling Of Love - "Numboy"

The Feeling Of Love - "Empty Trash Bag"

from Noisey:
The band started in the city of Metz back in 2006 as the solo project of the singer and guitarist Guillaume Marietta. He tapped keyboardist Sebastien Joly, an old friend from Guillaume’s long-dead band AH Kraken. Seb Normal, of the Normals and Crash Normal, picked up drums and joined the band. Their songs are generally tranced-out, droning psych bangers, minimal blues that brings the Velvets, Suicide, and Pussy Galore to mind. They cite Syd Barrett and Sublime Frequencies comps as influences.
