It's a verb complement: in this context it indicates an impression that one has.

My dictionary gives these examples where 起来 indicates an impression:

听起来满有道理 : It sounds quite reasonable.

看起来还可以 : It looks alright.

这支笔写起来很滑溜 : This pen writes smoothly.

As a verb complement tendency, it expresses:

2. the start of an action which will probably go on.

3. from down to up

4. speculation or consideration
