Indie rockers Fever Charm just dropped their brand new single, “Love Letters,” a mature look back at a relationship that– for one reason or another– didn’t work out. Lead singer Ari Berl’s Julian Casablanca-esque growl fronts a pulsating full-group effort, swinging back and forth between a bass-only quiet hush and a celebratory roaring guitar. Check it out below.
Here’s what Ari Berl had to say about the new track:
“Love Letters” is a super passionate and intimate break up song. It is about holding on to memories of a relationship that has ended, and letting go of really strong feelings. I wrote this song on top of the Griffith Observatory, and rushed to record it into a voice memo on my phone. I come up with my best song ideas when I am in motion contrasted with stillness. I was in a long-distance relationship that went sour, and eventually had to let it go. After not being able to get over it for a while, this song is what released those feelings into the wind for me. The ultimate release and wiping clean of the slate.
“Love Letters” is the debut single off Fever Charm’s upcoming Retrograde EP.
