Louisville’s The Fervor combines the twilight sway of Velvet Underground’s first album with Classic Rock-informed song arrangements and contemporary Indie Rock sonics for a mesmerizing, emotive sound that creeps and builds like a gathering storm.
The now-foursome has been together since 2005, formed around the plush, bewitching vocals and churning piano of frontwoman Natalie Felker.
Since its 2008 debut full-length, Bleeder, The Fervor has stayed busy with consistent regional tour dates, including shows with Cincinnati faves Wussy (the two bands released a limited-edition split 7-inch single for Louisville’s Karate Body Records) and work on a sophomore album, due soon.
The Fervor joins the Bay Area’s T.V. Mike and the Scarecrowes (check out their Sound Advice pick here) and local Indie Rock quartet Great Young Hunters at Mayday for an eclectic, free show.
