Welcome to

Feeling Gloomy

The home of sad songs that make you happy.


It was 2005 when Cliff and his un-merry band of tricksters got together to embrace all things miserable and melancholic.

Since then, they’ve been around the world, at loads of festivals and at their mum’s every Sunday for dinner. 

So come join the party, you’ll have a bawl!


We play sad indie and a bit of alt.

Expect to hear: The Cure, Pulp, Joy Division, David Bowie, Sisters Of Mercy, New Order, Depeche Mode, The Smiths, Echo & The Bunnymen, Kate Bush, Pet Shop Boys, Kraftwerk, Talking Heads, Suede, Blondie, Manic Street Preachers, Pixies, Interpol, The Clash, Belle & Sebastian, The Specials, Blur, Ramones, and maybe a bit of Bonnie Tyler now and again.


Feeling Gloomy has appeared at numerous festivals over the years, such as: Glastonbury, Latitude, Isle of Wight, Standon Calling, Green Man, Bestival, Camp Bestival, Neverworld, Camp Wildfire and more.
