Make Friends Share New Single ‘Fever’

Bristol-based indie outfit Make Friends are back with their brand new single Fever, the latest single to be taken from their highly-anticipated 5-track EP Is This Real, set to arrive on November 16th!
Recorded alongside Peter Sené (Everything Everything, Alfie Templeman) and mixed by James Trevascus (Invada Studios, Billy Nomates), Fever beautifully showcases the band's exciting and adventurous indie-rock sound and I am happy to share it with you. I am loving the confident vocals which are nicely backed by groovy guitar riffs and punchy drum patterns. 
Fever is a song inspired by the uncertainty and the feelings people had when covid restrictions started to be lifted, finally allowing us to do the things we wanted by having somewhat of an internal struggle whether it was okay or not to do them. This relatable message is wrapped around a memorable indie-pop/rock production with tons of energy and an overall rich and airy atmosphere that makes it perfect for those fun weekends out with friends. Check it out below!



Speaking about the new song, the band said,
We began writing Fever around the time restrictions were beginning to lift after the first lockdown. The song is about the uncertainty of that period and the internal struggles of deciding whether it was okay to start going back to some form of normality. After being stuck inside for so long, the idea of being able to do the things you love again sounded appealing, but there was a stigma attached to it that made it feel wrong, despite what we were being told.
