New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
On November 10th, Brooklyn's FEVER HIGH will release their long-awaited full length album, FHNY, which expands further on the danceable, retro-tinged sound that The Guardian described as "iridescent and infectious." Today Interview Magazine premiered the album's second single "Good Advice (ft. Jeff Goldblum)," which they called a "fizzy blast of electro-pop." Stream or embed the track via Soundcloud:
The duo - multi-instrumentalists Reni Lane and Anna Nordeen - made their debut with last year's critically acclaimed All Work EP. They found fans in places like NPR Music, Bitch Media, and Nerdist, who said who said "if it doesn't make you flex your butt cheeks and swing your hips wildly from side to side, then you should probably consult a physician."
Reni explains of the Jeff Goldblum connection, "I knew Jeff through our mutual friend Vincent
D'Onofrio. We bonded over our mutual love of jazz piano and stayed in touch. When we sent him 'Good Advice' and asked him to improvise something, to my delight he sent us an 8 minute rant of hilarious anecdotes about bad advice he'd been given in his career."
FHNY continues the band's collaboration with Adam Schlesinger (Fountains Of Wayne, Ivy) who also produced the All Work EP. Reni says, "After releasing All Work, we entered a new stage where we really honed our sound, lyrics, and mood... the new batch of songs takes everything to the next level." Adds Anna, "We want to sing about things we really feel and have fun at the same time."
New songs like "Spy" and "These Boys" find FEVER HIGH exploring new rhythmic territory while maintaining their flair for melodic hooks and lyrical playfulness.
After releasing the All Work EP, FEVER HIGH began to play live, with Adam and drummer Brad Wentworth joining Anna and Reni onstage for a run of club shows, as well as a string of dates supporting synthpop pioneers Book Of Love. They found radio support from influential stations like Los Angeles' KCRW and Austin's KUTX, and their songs showed up in numerous films and TV shows, including the CW comedy Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Netlfix's To The Bone, and three songs in the 2017 film Fun Mom Dinner.
FEVER HIGH will tour in support of FHNY, starting with a record release show at NYC's BERLIN on Oct 26th. More dates to follow.
