Feints // Class of 2014
Feints are Amy Douglas – vocals and keyboards, Rob Phillips – bass, David Baron – guitar. and Tim Marten – drums
Having spent the last few years doing feature vocal work for some of the biggest names in EDM (Treasure Fingers, Juan MacLean, Eli Escobar), Amy Douglas was looking to step out. In 2013, the voice behind SPF 5000 and Peach Melba was ready to shake it up.
Seeking a return to the rock roots that originally inspired her to make music, she started writing songs that satisfied the part of her that wanted to “make her own Goodbye Yellow Brick Road.” Soon SPF 5000 producer and bassist Rob Phillips, and guitarist David Baron were on board. Enter super drummer Tim Marten of The Audiants and FEINTS was born.
In a funky Victorian House in Somerville, the band ate, drank, and slept rock ‘n’ roll for a solid year. The mission was clear; make the music that takes everyone back to their own personal rock ‘n’ roll happy place.
When Feints’ song “Loaded Dice” premiered on WZLX’s Boston Emissions radio show (a mere nine hours after being mastered), the fuse was lit. The explosion was immediate, as blogs as varied as Vanyaland and Hard Candy picked up on Feints.
