Atlanta rock band Cover Your Tracks, will be releasing their newest album Fever Dream next month… I decided to give it a listen and see what Fever Dream is all about.
Up first, there’s Spin The Bottle. This one has a very strange, yet interesting introduction. It’s difficult to describe, other than just describing it as distorted. However, the real music begins when the instrumentals come in. Only 30 seconds in, and I can already tell this is definitely a headbanging track. When the vocals take their turn, it begins with a few seconds of clean vocals, before jumping into screaming, and so on before the chorus begins (which is brilliant, by the way).
Spin The Bottle is not only an excellent track, but also a great way to introduce the album. It’ll also get the listeners pumped up for what’s to come.
Next up is Striking Matches. Unlike the last track, there’s more clean vocals and considerably less screaming than before. Maybe not so much of a headbanger, but it certainly shows that the vocalist can sing well, as well as screaming. The lyrics also stand out a little more on this one too. I particularly like the lines “I don’t wanna be the reason you can’t feel anymore”. It certainly tells a story.
Up next is Bellow. We’re back to more screaming and headbanging again. On top of that, there’s some pretty sweet lyrics too, such as “There’s a voice in my head, and he’s already dead”. The concept of inner demons isn’t new, but it still sounds great nonetheless.
And finally, we have Are We Innocent. This one is slower than the last few tracks, and once again uses more clean vocals rather than screaming. It’s definitely a good thing though, as it shows that the album has variety in its tracks.
Overall, this has been an excellent album to talk about, and I hope fans and listeners will enjoy it as much as I did.
