A flavorful chamber pop-meets-indie rock record that is more complex than it initially appears, Fever is one of the standouts of 2019’s winter season.
NR
I was not expecting to like this as much as I did. Balthazar manages to create a diverse and eclectic soundscape full with epic and grandiose sounding songs, without seeming fabricated or fake or even heavy.
This Album comes out striking with 'Fever', which is beautifully orchestrated and although, this album may not be exactly genre bending or anything extremely eye-opening. I would be lying If I said this album was not very fun and a welcome and fresh take on indie pop rock.

I find it very engaging despite the simplicity of the (composition) formula. The more you listen to it the more you can immerse yourself in the details of the arrangements. The musical references are elegantly dosed and the production level above the average.

Sensual production values to this smooth operator that sometimes falls into clunky corny lyrics but I guess that's what the feel is all about with smooth bass lines and low rhythmic heartbeat that sets the red-scarf-over-the-bedside-lamp mood...
