AUX - 05/11/2012
FEVERS, the Ottawa-based “purveyors of independent electronic pop” perked my attention when I first heard their track “Passion Is Dead (Long Live Fashion)” a while back. The group have now released their debut video for the song, also launching the single edit of the track.

Exclaim! - 05/11/2012
Approached to make a clip two months ago, the group launched a funding campaign that saw local businesses and music enthusiasts contributing to get the project off the ground. The results gained the band access to a studio and crew, and the result is a simple, but fun, visual introduction to FEVERS.

When it came time to make a video ahead of festival application deadlines, the band, working with start-up producer Bryan McNally, chose the tune “Passion is Dead (Long Live Fashion),” for its message — and for the challenge inherent in making a video about a song that questions the continued rise of spectacle over substance.

Passion is Dead (Long Live Fashion), the title track from the album, falls firmly into the former category.

FEVERS – Passion Is Dead [Review]
Photogmusic - 10/21/2011
Passion Is Dead is seven tracks of good ol’ indie synth pop and electro dance rock tunes. I’d give Passion is Dead 8.8/10.
There are truly a cluster f*ck of reasons I like this record.This week's feature: FEVERSi(heart)music
Normally, I'd try and balance my enthusiasm with some kind of words of criticism, however small. In Passion Is Dead's case, though, I don't think that's possible.
