Felt were an English indie pop band, formed in 1979 in Water Orton, Warwickshire, and led by Lawrence Hayward. They were active for ten years through the 1980s, releasing ten singles and ten albums. The band’s name was inspired by Tom Verlaine’s emphasis of the word “felt” in the Television song “Venus”.
