How Does It Feel To Be Loved?




How Does It Feel To Be Loved? is a London club night that mixes indie pop with northern soul, Tamla Motown, girl groups, and Sixties heartbreak. Described by The Guardian as "absolutely the best night in the whole of the world" and Big Issue as "a speakeasy for anyone who suspects that their life is one big Smiths song", HDIF has played host to a range of guest DJs from Belle & Sebastian's Stuart Murdoch and Teenage Fanclub's Norman Blake to The Wedding Present's David Gedge and Dexys frontman Kevin Rowland.

The How Does It Feel To Be Loved? record label started in 2006 as the natural extension of the club night. We have released eight albums so far: a compilaton called "The Kids At The Club" featuring the likes of Fanfarlo, Suburban Kids With Biblical Names and Lucky Soul, and then full lengths by Butcher Boy, Antarctica Takes It!, Saturday Looks Good To Me, Cats On Fire and Pocketbooks. In 2009, "React Or Die" by Butcher Boy was named as the 93rd best album of the 2000s by The Times newspaper.
