Title - 'Let Yourself Down' [EP]
Artist - Feverseed
For those not in the know, Feverseed is a New York rock quartet founded by singer/lyricist George Panagakos and bass player Chris Crosby.
Here on their just-released new EP Let Yourself Down (out now via Hice Records), the band delivers a powerful and soulful debut that is sure to please fans of guitar-driven rock the world over.
Chris and George, both multi-instrumentalists, have been writing and recording together for years. They've explored many musical genres, but the common threads of their memorable and melodic compositions and George's versatile, unique and powerful voice are always present.
In 2019 they decided to quench their thirst for rock and Feverseed was born.
1. 'Let Yourself Down'
2. 'Beat Me'
4. 'Beat Me' (Radio Edit)
Featuring three songs, each with its own personality, the EP opens with the crashingly ornate title track, a powerful anthem of loss and redemption, and backs that up with a little Oasis-imbibed, early '90s rock 'n' roll in the form of 'Beat Me,' which itself is then followed by 'Imprint,' a mid-tempo, drum led, intimate epic of love and longing (there is also a Radio Edit of 'Beat Me' included).
Let Yourself Down was recorded in October 2020 at Suffolk Recording Studios, mixed by Chris Laybourne at Coop Studios and mastered by Roger Lian.
The recording and mixing process was very much a group effort. As George puts it, "While I did serve as producer of this EP and had a clear idea of what I wanted these songs to sound like, it was a very collaborative experience."
"I'm just a piano player who decided to pick up a guitar and rock. Chris and Wibbus are very much responsible for the guitar sound we achieved on the EP. Same goes for the drums."
"I told Drew what I was looking for, and he chose the right drum kit and set up the microphones perfectly to get me just what I needed."
"As far as the mix, Chris Laybourne was invaluable at taking my rough mixes and bringing them to life so beautifully, achieving the sound for these songs that I had envisioned from the very beginning."
