If your favorite Beatles song is “Revolution 9,” then you’ll love Fever Feel. Even if you have little respect for that comparison, keep reading—the Canadian three-piece is creative in the best ways. The band has a self-titled album due out next week, on September 14th to be exact; get a first look at their psychedelic mastery tonight at Harvard & Stone, where they will be supported by Wet & Reckless and others; more info.
The new album is a thoroughly enjoyable mixture of psych influences, such as the brilliant experimentation of John Lennon, the golden whimsy of Brian Wilson, and the slick timelessness of the Zombies. Their debut Days of Daze EP from a few years back left them room to grow, showing potential in their raw skill as players even if some elements in the studio recordings felt washed out. On the forthcoming record, expect the utmost clarity. Singles like “Somewhere Down the Line” and “Lose Your Mind” are boisterous samples of what you will hear live and in your headphones when Fever Feel finally drops.
See Fever Feel at Harvard & Stone tonight; more info. The band will be traveling up the west coast for shows in SF and Seattle before hitting more dates in Canada—all dates listed below.
