Fever Days are a 4 piece indie band based in Newcastle upon Tyne. Originating as a bedroom solo project created by the bands songwriter Oli Green, a number of early self-recorded demos were released which soon caught the attention of local press. The project then soon became a full band in order to accommodate for the style of music that was being written, with Green calling on his friends from uni to join in on the action.
Making their live debut at Evolution Emerging Festival, Fever Days’ sound combines elements of new wave and lo-fi alt-pop, sitting somewhere between Graham Coxon, Cloud Nothings and The Futureheads. Evolution Emerging has become something of a conduit for breaking acts in the North East of England, with past performers including The Pale White, Shields and Nadine Shah; if its previous graduates are anything to go by, Fever Days could be a band to keep a close eye on. Despite only one release to date, which landed on one of Spotify's coveted 'Fresh Finds' playlists, the band have already created something of a buzz locally following appearances at Meet The North Festival and tour support slots with Jordan Allen, Our Girl, and Spring King.
Fever Days are set to release their second single ‘I See Through It’ via record label Kaleidoscope (Callum Pitt, SHIELDS, Grace Gillespie) on 29th March 2019
Speaking about their latest release, Fever Days’ singer and guitarist Oli Green explained how the song attempts to wrestle with the modern-day problem of trying to maintain a perfect online presence despite the less glamorous realities lying beneath:
“’I See Through It’ is a song about becoming frustrated with social media. I scroll through Instagram and see people pretending to be what they are not, and pretending to live much more exciting lives than they actually do. I got tired of seeing people that I knew trying to show off for the sake of likes, acting like they were always having a great time when that wasn’t the case. It was all just a façade that I could see straight through.”
Now with a number of gigs planned within the North East region, Fever Days are working to build on their reputation for energetic and quirky live shows.
