Perhaps his last offering before releasing his self-titled debut album on August 19, ‘Fever’ introduces listeners to a more joyous, up-front optimistic sound than we have come to expect from Roosevelt.

Built around a luscious synth loop, Roosevelt returns with yet another track that puts his voice centre-stage. Combined with vocal loops during the chorus, it would seem that the track has a little bit of everything from Roosevelt’s discography, from a wonderful disco groove to seamless production.

In particular, when the bridge arrives, Roosevelt treats us to yet another Nile Rodgers-esque guitar sequence. This ensures that if you weren’t dancing during the first three minutes, it’ll be hard to resist come the final chorus, when everything comes together for a nuanced disco climax.

Words by Jonathan Watkins.

‘Fever’ is from the debut album ‘Roosevelt’ available 19 August on Greco-Roman / City Slang.
