Fever the Ghost is weird. In a recent feature on Clash Music about the band, singer Caspar Indrizzo is quoted as saying that debut album Zirconium Meconium is like “Easter bunny poop. You might look at that Easter bunny’s poop at first and be like, ‘I’m not gonna try that,’ but once you do, you might like it.” Indrizzo’s analogies may be nuts, but he’s right about the LP’s likeability.
Elsewhere in the feature, synth player Bornabin tells Clash about the band’s myriad influences, saying, “You can find something that we’d enjoy in pretty much any genre. Whatever sticks in the moment becomes a part of what’s influencing me. It’s like a journey – you stop, you meet new personalities in the form of these new musical things you’ve discovered.” Perhaps this quote explains the Easter bunny poop comparison; Fever the Ghost has ingested lots of delicious aural candy, digested it, and then dropped something completely fresh and new.
