After a handful of incredibly successful releases, The Great Leslie are back with another hit. New single Feel Alive was released on all platforms on June 3rd this year, and has already received its portion of well-deserved positive feedback.
In another life, they would’ve been pirates, The Great Leslie say. In this one, though, Ollie Trevors, Ryan Lavender, Alfie Pawsey, and Freddie Miles are rock stars in the making. Feel Alive surrounds infatuation and love-turned-to-addiction. Front-man Ollie Trevors describes the progression from idea to studio as organic and easy, explaining: “Even when we came to the actual recording we continued to add fresh ideas to give it the big sound it now has.”
The song hits within the first few seconds of playing. With a building, catchy guitar riff, the listener is pulled into the world of The Great Leslie. Their signature layered backing vocals add the final touch to ensure the catchy vocals are pushed to the front, while adding to the vulnerable lyrics of Feel Alive.
Without you I can’t survive, Ollie exclaims, “[The song] focuses on the carnal and physical aspects of becoming addicted to another person, viewing it as severely as any other addiction…”
Hard-hitting, catchy songs are nothing new for The Great Leslie. In 2021, the band saw a 999% growth across every metric on Spotify, along with well-earned praise from the likes of BBC Radio Wales, BBC Introducing, Kerrang! Radio, Radio X, and many more.
