It's part Blondie throwback, and part all-new, been-there-done-that attitude:

“You got it all wrong, baby I call the shots
I’m not what you need and I thought we agreed
That all I do is leave”— Fever Joy

In the world of this song, no one has to hide behind an alternate face; it's all very direct which is refreshing for the hot-girl persona. This is the next generation of songwriters who have grown up in the shadow of Shirley Manson. It's a bit raw, it's on fire, but also ice-cold, and as such personifies a certain duality: to wit, the modern listener.

Fever Joy is an indie pop band from Los Angeles. This song is featured on our CHILL NEW Songwriters series.
