C.S. Lewis and his Jesus-lion would not approve.
The band conjures up plenty of mood in both the song and the clip, delving deep into the seamy theatrics of cabaret, burlesque, and dark arts, resulting in something that's sexy and just a little bit scary. Fever moved to Portland by way of Oklahoma, and they've got quite a number of elements into their sound: glam, goth, and cabaret rock, sure—but also surf, LA-style drug-noir, and maybe even some bluesy Old Weird America. They're giving "White Witches" away as a free single on their site, which you can get right now.
