We here at Now Playing Radio can’t get enough of the sweet synth/dance/electro-pop beats comin’ out of the capital over the last while. Silkken Laumann, who had a song of the week on here just recently. The Glass Chain, who we’ve had on the show previously. Fire and Neon, who’ll be playing CMW in Toronto at the end of the month. Loon Choir, who was one of our first guests on the show and will be releasing a brand-new full-length album in the coming months. And Fevers, who we only caught wind of a couple months ago, but have totally fallen in love with already.
Jim, Colin and Martin of Fevers just happened to be in Toronto a little while ago, so we took the opportunity to meet for some patriotic pints of Beau’s and to chat about how they’ve been successfully creating buzz in Ottawa. (They also chat about their upcoming music video — which they actually just shot yesterday! We can’t wait to see the final product, you guys.)
And of course, many sweet tracks were spun, hand-picked by the guys themselves:
Fevers – Passion Is Dead (Long Live Fashion)
The Stills – Killer Bees
Misteur Vallaire – Dan Dan
controller.controller – History
Wintersleep – Insomnia
Fevers – End Of Love Song
And just last week, the band remixed another terrific Ottawa act (and more great friends of the show), Sound of Lions — the Enders (Fevers Evil Mix) is our belated Song of the Week, which you can stream and download below.
Sound of Lions – Enders (Fevers Evil Mix)
Listen if you like: Sound of Lions and Fevers, naturally; rad Ottawa music love; strong, female-fronted slow jams; remixes that are a little more dark than dance-y.
And for Ottawa listeners, Fevers will be playing a couple of hometown shows this month — one with Minus the Tiger at Mercury Lounge, which is guaranteed to be awesome. More info about upcoming dates can be found over on our Ottawa Listings page.
