Newcastle’s Oliver Green is back with the next installment of his admirable solo project, Fever Days.
The Northern songsmith is set to release his second single ‘Hey’ tomorrow, so NE Volume are here to provide indie fans with an exclusive pre-release review of the explosive new track.
January marked the release of the multi-instrumentalist’s debut single, ‘Bored’, which was met with a sea of widespread praise across the North East.
With his impressive ability to merge a blend of self-written bass, synth, guitar and vocal sectors, Green is a welcome addition to the Northern music scene; with ‘Bored’ attracting attention from multiple radio outlets (see our March printed edition for our review too).
Now, second track ‘Hey’ seems to be the perfect follow-up to such a successful debut.
The latest addition to the project sees listeners instantly immersed in a strong, infectious guitar riff, making it hard to resist being temporarily lost in the rhythm. The gripping intro lays the groundwork for the upbeat tempo which consistently flows throughout the track.
Green’s razor-edged, angst-filled lyrics are punctuated with an indisputable wit, with lines such as ‘I’m like the sun, when I disappear I’m never coming back,’ underpinning his charismatic and straight-talking lyricism.
The latter end of the track is laced with a virtuosic guitar solo, reinstating just how talented this young musician is.
It’s only early days, but the sense of hype and excitement surrounding this artist ensures he’s destined for great things.
