Following the premiere of their debut single “Radiator Face,” the Manchester-based Luxury Death present “I Feel Your Pain,” a lament masked as a breezy summer jam. While the rest of the band marches on carefree, founding members Ben Thompson (formerly of Band To Watch alums Nai Harvest) and Meg Williams prove that the stakes are high: “Hide the drugs in your cheeks/ Swallow and you’ll feel complete/ You don’t know me at all.” Halfway through, a 69-second guitar solo switches between smooth and jagged, giving the listener some time to ponder the complicated nature of dealing with a troubled friend. Thompson and Williams are fond of “ah-ah-ohs,” but the duo always manages to punctuate them with “I feel your pain,” making Luxury Death more empathetic than psychedelic. Check it out below.
