There's nothing quite like a bit of recklessness in music. Everything Everything channels their inner chaos in A Fever Dream to bring a bustling album with interesting sounds and awesome moments.
The first impression you get of the music is 'Night Of the Long Knives,' a dreamy track that sounds reminiscent of Radiohead. The album continues on into more anthemic and pop-friendly grounds, 'Desire' being big and punchy, bound to get you pumping your fists and bobbing your head. The combined work of the entire record really makes it all one energetic experience that'll keep you grooving the entire time.
It isn't until the second half of the record that Everything Everything treads into more reckless territory. 'Run The Numbers' brings a flamboyant chaos similar to that of Cage The Elephant, great guitar work and melodies backing the rampant sound. Grooviness overtakes 'Ivory Tower' to make for an awesome and funny track. Things do calm down before the end, 'White Whale' bringing the record out on a dreamy and lyrically provocative note.
Everything Everything channels their inner chaos in A Fever Dream, taking big moments and softer instances of recollection and making something very intriguing. You won't be able to take your attention away from the album at the same time you won't be able to stop jamming out.
