THE FEVER is a video collaboration between South African singer Jeri Silverman and Czech artist Radka Salcmannova. The song comes from Silverman’s debut EP entitled “Leaflike,” which is composed of 5 original tracks and a cover of Dreams by Fleetwood Mack. Featured musicians include Adam Christgau (Tegan & Sara, Troye Silvan) on drums, and noted producer Dan Romer(Ingrid Michaelson, A Great New World) on bass.
“I am deeply attached to this song, said Salcmannova. “Besides of the fact that Jeri is a talented singer, the song captures something that is difficult to describe. When our ego dominates us, pushing us in many directions, rather than what we desire in our core. It’s a natural process of struggle. We artists want to achieve something so we push it so hard and go forward absolutely blind. I wanted at first to do a realistic narrative, but decided this abstract form, visually beautiful and deep, with some dark parts that are not always obvious how to interpret.”
