If you were starting to feel sad about the summer draw to a close, the Fever Breakers have released the sun-soaked sultry Blues anthem that may just ignite that summer euphoria once again. Bully may be short and sweet, but it packs quite the sultry rhythmic punch. Lyrically the single didn’t quite match the euphoria of the instrumentals, yet the simplicity only increased the accessibility of the sound. The Boston based outfit have taken Neo-Jazz to the next level with their cathartically sensuous style, yet, their admirability extends beyond their soundscapes. With all their music, they tackle current societal issues, which will become plaintively clear as you listen to the narrative of upbeat disparity unfold.
You can check out the Fever Breakers latest track Bully for yourselves by heading over to YouTube now. With a lyric video which attacks Weinstein, Putin, and misogyny in general it’s hard not to be a little overcome by the conceptualism of the track. Usually, tracks tackling such issues have some undertone of anger, yet somehow the Fever Breakers created a good-vibe hit which you’ll want to listen to time and time again every time you feel like your hope for humanity is slipping away.
