"The Fevers"

Genre: Indie / Experimental / Garage
From: Sheffield, United Kingdom

Sheffield's The Fevers dropped the Devil a line to bring attention to their new single 'Alright' (disappointingly not a cover of the Supergrass classic) which will be released on 9th February.

'Alright' does exactly what it says on the tin, it's alright and worth a listen. It's also easy to see why they've chosen it as the single. It's accessible, catchy, safe and a little flat pack indie. It'd sell it's granny to be the La's but is resigned to being Cast.

The good news is that 'Alright' isn't representative of The Fevers sound and is easily my least favorite track on their myspace site. Their best and most interesting track by a good country mile, the epic eight minute long 'Stop', kicks off like Echo & The Bunnymen circa 'Crocodiles''Alright' that they could be produced by two different bands.

Of the other tracks on their myspace site 'Wishing My Life Away' is another Cast off, 'The Lights Aren't On' and 'Gotta Change' are cut from the same cloth as 'Stop' and 'Falling' (with it's self indulgent guitar solo) hasn't quite made up it's mind (I guess you could say it's falling between two stools - groan!).

The band tell me that 'Alright' was one of their earliest tracks and the other tracks on their myspace site were written within the last four weeks. Where they're heading looks like a much more interesting destination than where they've been.

It's early days for the Fevers but if they throw away the La's albums, ditch the self indulgent guitar solos and take the road less travelled signalled by 'Stop' then they'll be a band to be reckoned with. - The Devil Has the Best Tuna

"The Fevers, "Alright"."

Unashamedly harking back to the better side of the Britpop revolution of the latter half of the 1990s, The Fevers` new single combines a sing-a-long chorus, driven guitar lines, ba-ba-ba backing vocals and, oh yes, a proper wig out guitar solo. Completely unfashionable in this age where bands recruit fans by simply wearing the same polka dot hoodies as them and, for that reason, highly recommnded - if only for a quick bite of the kind of indie treats served up by the likes of the Bluetones and the teenage (and best) version of Ash. - Culture Deluxe


We have just released our first single "Alright" as a download, and are selling it as a CD at gigs - this has 2 more songs on it. These other 2 songs are available on our myspace and are better (in my humble opinion!)



The Fevers were formed in 2006 as a four piece - vocals, 2 guitars, bass and drums. All of us had previously formed a part of various bands within the Sheffield area. Three years of gigs in Sheffield proved fruitful in creating a sound where punk harshness meets a melange of spacious guitars, underpinned by a blues-funk rhythm section. After a gig free spell towards the end of 2008, we began 2009 with a busy schedule including the release of the single "Alright", followed by a number of live dates around the UK. During the subsequent tour, we lost our bass player due to "musical differences"?! However this has not deterred us from continuing our musical tradition and Kev, our singer and rhythm guitarist, has simply switched to playing bass and singing in our new 3 piece line up. We are embrassing the new and interesting possibilities of the dynamic created by this new lineup as we search for anyone that would like to join us in our quest! Our influences range from punk to prog rock/indie to funk/disco (our drummer is to blame for this!!).
