    Portugal. The Man talked with Billboard about their hit “Feel It Still:”

    It comes down to the way our political parties work where it’s basically football teams. If you’re not on Team Trump, you’re on Team Hillary and it’s such a ridiculous way to look at politics and to look at the way we’re voting. I’ll talk shit all day long but at the end of the day I don’t want to vote for anybody. I don’t feel strongly for either one of those people. So many of my friends were for Bernie all the way and said, ‘If he doesn’t get it, I’m not voting.’ It’s a ridiculous process. The fact at all that Bernie had to run as a Democrat is kind of what the song is about.

    That's pretty cool. Makes me like the song even more.

    I had no idea their song got that much exposure. Good for them.

    It's a good song, need to listen to the lyrics better next time. Philly's 104.5 plays it all the time. And I mean all.the.time.

    They always get TONS of plays on any ALT station, along with Grouplove, Andrew McMahon, Cold War Kids, Cage the Elephant...any station that plays that kinda stuff.

    Oh yeah, it's on a pretty massive commercial now as well.

    Caught it on AltNation on SiriusXM over the weekend and it's apparently been number 1 on their Alt18 countdown for 10 weeks straight.

    Song is suuuuch a jam. Band consistently releases great music.

    Perhaps. I should have added that I'm from Canada, so we don't always get the same artists playing on these stations.

    That station does not know how to rotate songs.

    No, they really really don't. I only listen in my 20 min commute to work and back, and swear it's pretty much been the same rotation of 25 songs/bands for at least a year.

    Yeah I’m pretty sure it’s just a digital playlist and not often a live DJ

    I would use it as my alarm in high school and it is the reason I passionately hate the Foo Fighters. Nothing is worse than hearing the same band over and over at 6 am

    That loneliness is not a function of solitude.

    Great, now I have to stop liking Portugal. The Man. Some real white dude bullshit, as usual
