FEVERS are about to unleash their eagerly anticipated sophomore LP Apologia to their fans across North America & Europe. Helped along by the inspired mixing of Grammy-nominated Damian Taylor (Björk, Austra, Braids), Apologia brings Fevers’ penchant for writing infectious electro dance-pop to a new level. Having already put Ottawa on the independent electronic music scene map with their debut album, ‘No Room For Light‘, released in late 2013, they hope to break new ground with this new electro-tinged release. Their LP garnered acclaim throughout North America, and at home, gracing the cover of the last edition of the Ottawa XPress. They’ve shared stages with the likes of Tegan & Sara and Dirty Projectors and played prestigious concerts such as Ottawa Bluesfest, NXNE, Tulip Festival, Pop Montreal, Capital Pride, JUNOfest and the Festival de l’Outaouais Émergent. Their music has enjoyed regular rotation on CBC Radio 2 and recent plays on the commercial airwaves across Canada including SiriusXM, LiVE88.5 Ottawa, RADIO96.5 Halifax, ROCK95 Barrie and The Wolf Regina, as well as multiple placements on the CBC Radio 3 R3-30 and !earshot charts.
The band’s title track “Passion is Dead (Long Live Fashion)” took on a new life in 2012 as FEVERS released their debut music video for the track, one that was made possible by local creative producer Bryan “Shooter” McNally, an IndieGoGo campaign, and the generosity of Ottawa businesses and contributors. The local support was further expressed when the video won First Prize at the Ottawa International Film Festival. Sarah Bradley (vocals, keys), Martin Charbonneau (keys, guitar), Jim Hopkins (bass), Colin MacDougall (guitar, vocals and keys) and Mike Stauffer (drums, sampling) are proud to be part of this community and are excited to put it on the map of the electro scene.
