The fellas of Phony Ppl once again gave us something to jam to with the arrival of their latest album Euphonyous. The album is jam-packed with cuts that have been on repeat since the set's release last month. One that sticks with many, however, is probably the album closer "what it feels like." The track is all about wishing for the finer things, with the band pondering what it would feel like to have a cool million in the bank. Before the year is up, they're blessing us with a unique visualizer for the song.
"what it feels like." is an honest cut about wanting to become a millionaire. With a premise so frank, the Phonies lace the cut with insights and jazz-meets-hip-hop instrumentation featuring an assist from The Soul Rebels. Meanwhile, singer Elbie Thrie sings what many of us probably think on a regular basis on the chorus, crooning, "I wonder what it feels like to have a million dollars / I wonder what it feels like to be a f**kin' baller."
The visualizer features a neat effect that turns the band hanging out in their New York City habitat and the studio into a picture collage style that layers images on top of another. The result is an artistic clip that is one of the most interesting visuals that we've seen. In fact, if this was the song's official video, we wouldn't be the least bit mad.
Dropping off this visualizer isn't the only thing that Phony Ppl are doing before the year is up. If you happen to be spending the last week of the year in the Big Apple, you can catch the group ripping up the stage at New York City staple S.O.B.'s for a two-night-only event on December 28th and 29th. Tickets for the shows are available now through the venue's website. Before you hop over there, though, peep Phony Ppl's unique vision in the visualizer for "what it feels like." when you press play.
