Fever Fever's full length debut, Love Quest, lives up to its name very well in the fact that, well, listening to it feels so much like an actual quest. By the time the first track (Familiar Faces) is over, and the instrumental Imperium of Spirits begins, you want to drive out to the woods, strap on a loin cloth, and run as fast as you can. Maybe out to some remote spot where you can fall in the grass and take in the rest of the albums ambiance and haunting harmonies. That is, only to get up and run once more.

Lyrically, the band achieves an inspiration power typically missing from the indie scene in the Columbus area. These words, combined with an energy and light offered at their live shows, make Fever Fever a Columbus favorite. The men from Fever Fever are definitely reaching for a higher plane, singing, It's not the end/When you find/ that you've arrived/take my hand/let me see that smile again (Smile), and For the first time/I can sleep easy/From the first time/you were in my life (Sleep Easy). Balanced out with plenty of OooWeeOoo's and AhhWeeAhh's, a certain level of dancability is achieved on top of the ambient chill-out drones on Love Quest.

The album is definitely a roller coaster of emotions: reflection, relaxation, drive, repentance, and inspiration fit for a hero. There is more going on here than the ambient chill-out rock that these guys are known for. For instance, their song Time might be the farthest stretch these guys make into driving rock that still keeps you floating about the clouds. This is seconded by a head bobbing drive behind the beat of Falling From the Sky. While Familiar Faces and the following Imperium of Spirits make anybody (like I mentioned earlier) want to strip themselves and spend the afternoon racing through the woods. At the end of it all, unlike most bands who leave a 7+ minute track for posterity, Fever Fever leave us with another epic instrumental. At a length only 1 minute and 44 seconds, Heaven and Earth is the track that, after racing through the woods and floating on the edges of the atmosphere, plays right as you reach the top of the mountain with flag in hand. Vulnerable yet on top, Fever Fever leaves you seeking something more. - Examiner

Bio

In an age where popular music is often filtered with a desire for fame, Fever Fever has set out to create something sincere. The songs are given from deep hearts to deep hearts. Early on in the band's career, the members quickly found themselves desiring truth and wisdom beyond their immediate grasp. This search in time bore a deep love for expression in music and--even more--a drive to know and love people in authentic community.

In 2009 Fever Fever released their first official EP containing radio played, Johnny Fever, from which the band derived its name. Over the following year, the band members began to pour out their life influences into the band's 2010 LP LoveQuest. An album dedicated to the journey of life in its highs and lows.

Most recently, Fever Fever has brought new creative life to the alternative indie scene in their 2012 EP, Kingdom reflecting on the various states of Gods kingdom in heaven and on earth. "Kingdom" is receiving national radio play on CMJ-charted radio stations.
