Newcastle alt-rockers FEVA share raucous new cut ‘We’re Not Defective’
Released 29th August
Debut EP drops this autumn
Heightening their credentials as one of the North East’s biggest emerging acts, Newcastle alt-rockers FEVA share raucous new cut We’re Not Defective, the lead track from the band’s forthcoming debut EP out later this autumn.
Spearheaded by charismatic frontman Sam Reynolds’ snarling lead vocals, the rising quartet’s latest effort shimmers with fierce indie licks and aggressive guitar tones, trademark qualities that’ve already earned widespread critical acclaim (The Line Of Best Fit, Clash, Dork) and praise across the airwaves (BBC Radio 1, BBC 6 Music).
“We feel like this track is where we’ve been trying to get to since we started as a band and we’re very proud to release it as the lead single off our debut EP”, the four-piece explained. “We’ve maintained since day one that we want to write heavy tunes that have a profound meaning and we feel like we’ve done so here”.
“The song is meant to empower people and we sincerely hope it does. We’re all navigating our way through life, one shitstorm, one pipedream at a time and just because you take a different path or never quite make it to your end, it doesn’t mean there’s anything wrong with you, it doesn’t mean you’re defective”.
Following on from summer shows alongside Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds and The Vaccines, the Geordie risers are shaping up for their busiest period to date with further EP material on the way and their debut UK tour lined up in October.
