The Hot Wires
The Hot Wires
The Hot Wires consist of former members of Dangerbird, Adventure and The Pine Club. Blues-rock, garage punk enthusiasts whose tastes have shifted into the heavy side of late-60s/early 70s goodness. Check out our EP at thehotwires.bandcamp.com
The Fervor
The Fervor
With its combination of mysterious yet timeless lyrics and brooding arrangements, Arise, Great Warrior, the sophomore album from The Fervor, is a poignant and gripping ride from start to finish.
The first words on the record uttered by frontwoman Natalie Felker are Arise, great warrior / inside, you’re a destroyer / by the time we see the sun / you’re already on the run. Delivered in her husky voice with its distinct and seductive tone, she paints a mystical, dreamlike picture. Alongside Natalie’s radiant vocals and shimmering keys, guitarist Ben Felker, bassist Michael Campbell and drummer Mat Herron create hypnotic atmospheres that stomp and crash toward epic climaxes.
Arise, Great Warrior was produced by Charles Gonzalez, who recorded with the band in San Francisco, where they experienced a rebirth of sorts. Rather than aiming for note-for-note perfection, the group aimed to capture an enrapturing performance of each song. The Fervor then headed back to Louisville to mix with engineer Kevin Ratterman (My Morning Jacket, Wax Fang). By keeping the focus on the power of what the four band members can do together in a room, the result is an album fueled by an energy that feels potent and organic around every corner. All the exciting twists and turns of the album build up to an ultimate catharsis as the haunting final notes of “Let’s Get Loaded” gently ring out.
Featuring artwork by Carolyn Kimball, Arise, Great Warrior is out now vinyl via Karate Body Records. The first 300 copies are hand-numbered and include a postcard you can redeem for a free download of the album. Arise, Great Warrior is available digitally from Removador Recordings & Solutions and on CD via SonaBLAST.
