Titled ‘Like A Fever’ Jack Perrett’s new single was released on October 12th. Based on a melodic guitar riff Like A Fever is a high-paced energetic piece of work so catchy that you can sing it back after a single listen. Resembling some of the early works of Franz Ferdinand the song looks set to become an indie classic and live with us for years to come.
Set in the his hometown Newport, Jack Perrett’s previous single was a parody based on Blur’s Parklife. ‘Portlife’ went viral, reaching more than 100,000 views.
Since then Jack has been busy recording his latest bombastic indie anthem. Although the track is released digitally and is available for streaming from Friday 12th October, physical copies are due for release on Friday 7th December.
“The song started off with a guitar riff that I had, explains Jack. “Then I had a couple of verses with lyrics based around chord progression. Lyrically, the song is about the people who go out in their own city centres every Saturday night and get into trouble after not handling their drink.”
The single was recorded at Rat Trap Studios in Cardiff with producer Steffan Pringle.
“It is sort of me saying ‘Why waste your money every weekend on drinking in the same nightclub surrounded by the same people who you don’t even like?’. After a few practices in the studio I started playing it live with the band and people watching us were loving it so it had to be the next single.”
