Debut singles can be tough. Many bands take a while to develop a fully-formed sound, hence their debut releases often lack direction. Perth-based outfit Fever Dream, however, are not one of these bands.
With the release of their debut single Jeffrey’s Kind, the group have immediately established their penchant for crafting truly original, story-driven folk-rock gems. If you’re not already across this band, we strongly recommend you change that.
On their debut single Jeffrey’s Kind, Perth-based outfit Fever Dream craft a captivating and original slice of folk-rock storytelling.
Throughout the new single, Fever Dream weave elements of blues, folk, rock, and roots to create a sound uniquely their own. With textured instrumental arrangements and warm, endearing vocals, Jeffrey’s Kind is brimming with infectious sonic energy.
Lyrically, the track views the world through the eyes of a cat—Jeffrey. The single explores human relationships from an outside perspective, highlighting the insignificance of our problems. Within the song’s punchy three-and-a-half-minute run-time, the band craft a captivating musical story. Once you dive into this new track, you’ll be unable to rip your attention away.
These may still be early days for this Western Australian band, but judging by the quality of everything we’ve heard so far, I think we can safely expect plenty more great material.

Fever Dream will be launching the single live at The Rosemount Hotel on August 2nd.
