Still Woozy’s new take on MGMT’s “Electric Feel” may not shock you like an electric eel, but it will beckon you with its funky melody and warm embrace. Rather than sliding in on an explosive opening note, the familiar tune arrives subtly on the strings of an acoustic guitar. Harmony is added through a delicate piano adding mostly to the ambiance and feel of the song. The bassline and drums cannonball into the tune filling out the instrumental set. “Electric Feel” pulses forward infectiously, and Still Woozy smooths out some of the jauntiness of the song and tightens some of the pauses in vocals.
The accompanying video makes experiencing the song even more fun, as the audience gets a front-row seat in the studio, to watch the folding in of each instrument in the mix. A lot of time, passion, and fun were dumped into the performance. With an extreme close-up on his eyes and an outfit change into a pink fuzzy blanket suit, Sven Gamsky, the solo-artist behind Still Woozy doesn’t take himself too seriously and adds a visual layer of attitude. (Bonus points if you spotted the dog! One of the positive side effects of all the stay-at-home guidelines.)
