Say Yes Dog channel disco-funk with ‘Feel Better’
Location: Berlin, Germany
Label: Discodogs Records
FFO: Phoenix, Leyya, Two Door Cinema Club
German trio Say Yes Dog bring a touch of disco funk with their new song ‘Feel Better’. Channelling a determined philosophy to the carefree sound with pulsing rhythms and bright, spritely synth. “I know it’s hard to face your fears right from the start,” ruminates vocalist Aaron Ahrends as the track builds to falsetto harmonies, juxtaposing the light with the dark. If you’re a fan of the liberating sound of Phoenix, this will be right up your street, and similarly ‘Feeling Better’ needed a playful video to match.
“When we finished to produce ‘Feel Better’, we felt we needed a second layer to the upbeat vibe of the track to make it visually more fascinating. When we got Adam Sait on board to direct our video, he introduced to us the idea of turning the hook of the chorus into a liberating mantra, giving the song a more twisted take.
“Rather than pushing our initial vision, we let Adam follow his instinct and create an imagery for the song: the outcome is a silly, dopey representation of it. We feel that most of the time is better and more natural not to take yourself too seriously rather than create an overly constructed vision of yourself anf your song”.
‘Feel Better’ is featured on Say Yes Dog’s album Voyage, both of which are available now.
