PWRHAUS – “How I Feel About You” (Stereogum Premiere)

PWRHAUS counts Robin Pecknold among its fans, but their music doesn’t really resemble Fleet Foxes’ woodsy splendor. Rather, the large Portland ensemble — fronted by a man named Tonality Star, and why he doesn’t just record under that name is a true mystery — trades in languid, soulful lo-fi rock. Today we’re sharing “How I Feel About You,” the title track from the upcoming PWRHAUS album. It kinda sorta belongs to the recent resurgence of ’70s singer-songwriter fare, but it’s also a little bit ’50s rock ‘n’ roll, with some traces of internet-era indie-rock. The result is a slow-burn sing-along topped off by a memorable howling hook. Start remembering it below.

How I Feel About You is out 11/20. Preview another track at Bandcamp.
