For several years, Feels have been one of L.A.’s most intriguing bands. Formerly known as Raw Geronimo in a nod to singer-guitarist Laena Geronimo, Feels alternate punk-rock intensity with unexpectedly lush and dreamy pop idylls. The group’s 2019 album, Post Earth, juxtaposes such frenetic and freaky punk blasts as “Car” and “Deconstructed” with gentler, more restrained interludes like “W.F.L.” When Feels combine both dualities in the same song, such as “Awful Need” and the shadowy exploration “Sour,” they take simple indie rock into stranger and more compelling places. Guitarist Shannon Lay recently left the band to pursue her thriving career as a solo folkie, but the new version of Feels returns the focus to Geronimo, the madly talented singer who likely inherited much of her spirit from her late father, Alan Myers, Devo’s most inventive drummer. With Gustaf, Gesserit, and Cumgirl8.
