It’s been half a decade since their foundation, and Aussie-born, locally-based five-piece Go Fever is once again putting Austin in a fever pitch! Frontwoman Acey Monaro relocated from Down Under to the Live Music Capital in 2013 (when she also married Go Fever’s bass player) and early last year this hungry young quintet released their self-tilted debut.
Go Fever set the bar high, with lots of retro new wave elements mixed in with modern rock and shoegaze stylings. In February we’ll be able to hear their sophomore album Daydream Hawker, an album recorded in Jim Eno’s home studio, with work from The War On Drugs engineer Brad Bell and mixed by Ali Chant, who’s also been behind PJ Harvey and Perfume Genius.
There’s a ton talent on the back end, so you know Go Fever’s new stuff is up to snuff. Case in point: Daydream Hawker‘s lead single, released last Friday and still turning the temperature up when we need it the most, “Feel So Much”!
