Chicago's Post Animal will release their remarkable sophomore album Forward Motion Godyssey next week on Polyvinyl, and today they share one more single before it drops. Showcasing the band's ability to craft an epic slowburner that seamlessly blends synth-pop with their psych-inspired prog sound, the expansive “How Do You Feel” is out now alongside a Pooneh Ghana-directed music video. The band says the track “explores the confusion and eventual acceptance of complicated emotions,' and it follows the previously released “Safe Or Not”, “Schedule,” and “Fitness,” which have already received support from the likes of The FADER, NPR Music, Billboard, and many more. Ghana says the video “presents a story of having a dream, and the ups and downs of chasing it, but never giving up on it. It touches on the ideas of sheer ambition, self reflection, nostalgia, growing older, and how one may decide to approach their life in result of all this. It's an epic internal journey—a godyssey, even!—for our main character, who wouldn't and couldn't do anything else with her life, even if it is a struggle, at times.”
