Feelz’s newest single “Wake Me Up” has us all wishing we were on the dance floor.
The song combines Feelz’s ludicrous DJing skills and Gabriel’s fresh vocals to create a lively track.
Feelz’s main influences come from various electronic pop artists, lending him the high-energy vibes of his live shows. In “Wake Me Up,” Feelz describes wanting to move past an emotional event without having to go through the hard parts.
Wake me up, when it’s over/Wake me up to find some closure/wake me up/Just wake me up
We see the struggle of getting through the bad to ultimately come out on top with closure. These lines are paired with a sudden build up in the beat, then a sudden change in the rhythm plus an added bass line to emphasize the emotion in his lyrics.
