Lennon Wells cut the shit with ‘coming-of-age’ indie belter ‘How Does It Feel’

Inspired by recognized growth within their mates, Tasmania’s Lennon Wells have today released their final single of 2022; the upbeat-indie track ‘How Does It Feel’.

Pulling no punches, the band are both introspective and analytical of growing older, penning the track about recognizing when the partying and “sending it” every weekend starts to take its toll. Noting, this can be the moment in anyone’s life when they start to settle down, or buck the trend & keep going, despite the physical and mental damage – as they’ve witnessed in themselves and their friends.
‘How Does It Feel’ sharply captures the energetic frenzy that Lennon Wells have built their reputation on, toing and froing between driving verses, before building into a pulsating chorus, noodling guitar lines dancing over the top. Throwing the previous recording processes out the window, the band relished in a live environment, tracking all the instrumental parts together as one full take.

This created a track that truly represents how Lennon Wells sound live, with ‘How Does It Feel’ dripping in grit, sweat & urgency. Working out of ‘The Church’ in Hobart, the band worked with legendary local Al Future to self-produce, mix & master the track.
“The song is about the friend that’s in every group that still sends it a little hard every weekend, even though they’re at an age they should probably be over it, but also, it’s about how myself and a lot of mates I know have all been that stage, where you probably need to reign it in a little bit but you can’t be fucked. You’re not ready to settle and you don’t care what people think – even if you know you’re being terrible to yourself, both mentally and physically” 
Ben Wells, Lennon Wells

“The recording process was completely different to the last release, in that, we we’re all present in the studio, and we wanted to record the song as one full take with all of us in the room. Previously we’d recorded parts separately – as covid restrictions meant no more than 3 people in the studio. I think ‘How does it feel’ really represents what the band sounds like live and you can sense the energy and the urgency within the recording”  Skinner, Lennon Wells

To celebrate the release, Lennon Wells have teamed up with local mates Jeqa Spooky Eyes to put on a performance at a secret venue, the Lions Dens, in Tasmania.

Revealing the address at a later date, the show will provide only their closest fans & friends and exclusive first look at the live debut of ‘How Does It Feel’ on Friday, November 18th.
Kicking off in 2021, Lennon Wells quickly made a name for themselves, sharing stages with The Murlocs, Slowly Slowly, The Jungle Giants & more. With a reputation for a roaring and frenzied live show, the band landed slots on festivals Party In The Paddock, Great Escape, as well as a slot at the 2021 TSL Grand Final performing in the middle of UTAS Stadium.

Having landed support from tastemaker triple j for previous singles ‘Comparisons’ & ‘Beast On My Back’, the band quickly racked up 40,000+ streams across DSP’s for their debut EP. Starting to build momentum nationally now, ‘How Does It Feel’ is set to be the band’s foray into the hearts of even larger audiences & allow them to sweat and entice on stages across Australia.
