That Feeling is...ambitious, in its own ways. The instrumentation is odd, the structure is non-traditional, the general feel of it is a bit hard to place. Nonetheless I think it's a really interesting piece of music with some tasty hooks, so enjoy (and try not to fixate on the generic-sounding title)!

LYRICS

(When I'm with you)

Stoke up the fire now
Let's breathe in the smoke
It's got us going 'round
Aching for more
Our lungs get turned to ash
You're killing me slow
I know that this can't last
It's burning us both

Just for one night let's fall in love
We'll go our separate ways when the sun comes up
So tonight let's make the most of it

Feeling
Over and again I get that feeling
Your hands are shaking you can feel it too, yeah
Your body burning like a heat wave
When I'm with you

When I'm with you (x2)

Love was never something we wanted (but we've got lust in spades)
We're not alike, we'd never be happy (but we can play the game)

Just for one night let's fall in love
We'll go our separate ways when the sun comes up
When the sun comes up

That feeling
Over and again I get that feeling
Your hands are shaking you can feel it too, yeah
Your body burning like a heat wave
When I'm with you

When I'm with you (x2)

I appreciate that you went for a bit of a different sound with the guitars this time. Perhaps it’s something about the amp? Anyway, I love the climax into :22. The vocals are seriously strong as always. Perhaps the instrumentation changes a tad suddenly at 1:02, but that’s a small detail. I really liked the rhythmic elements and energy of the post-chorus at 1:40, but I think you didn’t quite spit out some of the syllables there (“something” sounds like it got cut off). The instrumentation is a tad wonky, admittedly, but I actually really like the structure. It’s not a long piece, but I feel like you did a lot with the form. I’m hugely impressed that you continue to bang out these fun, energetic, strongly-mastered pieces every 2 weeks, Finn. By all means, keep up the great work!
