The new song is a huge celebration of extravagant rock ‘n’ roll and plays as if Queen starred in The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Regarding the single Felix says, “This is a noisy hymn to the people we love, a fast-paced, growling, glittery beast to brighten your eyes and grab you by the throat. Take a hold of that person you adore, and let’s dance."
Felix and his band’s on-going mission is to cram British pop music with the exuberance and majesty of grandiose, flamboyant rock’n’roll. ‘Hey I Want You’ follows the release of the electro-rock stomper ‘Delirium Tremendous’, both taken from the forthcoming album.
Felix Hagan & The Family deliver sharp lyricism, with songs that deal with typically dark subjects – depression, addiction, the loss of young dreams and the torpor of everyday life – then set them on fire in a joyous explosion of spectacle.
The critically acclaimed seven piece are also a firm favourite of folk-punk legend Frank Turner, who said about the band, "Within about 30 seconds of them taking the stage, I was sold; a total convert, a newly-signed-up member of the cult.”
They have supported the singer across the country, and play with him again at The Big Issue presents Street Noise festival in Manchester tonight (August 24th).
