“Starting as a recording project by Craig Fahner in 2011, Feel Alright has evolved into a collaborative live project that has found homes in Pittsburgh and Montreal before settling in Calgary. Feel Alright’s infectious guitar-pop songs evoke the studious power pop of Big Star; the nose-thumbing sneer of The Soft Boys; the harmony-heavy sound of early 90s Halifax; and the DIY fuzzy pop of contemporaries like Tony Molina and Sheer Mag. Feel Alright released their first full length LP in 2011 entitled Hahahahahaha, reissued in 2015 on vinyl by Tonal Plexus out of Athens, Greece. The band also released a 2013 7” on Mammoth Cave Records, and a split EP with Toronto’s Century Palm on Planet of the Tapes.”
Craig Fahner on “Truth About Us”: “I’ve always admired how great power pop songs can squeeze so much meaning and melody out of simple rock and roll truisms. ‘Truth About Us’ is our attempt to pack as much energy and melody and love and mystery as possible into a three-chord stomper, in the spirit of Nick Lowe and Wreckless Eric.”
