Hello Fever:
By Mandana Beigi
Broken Lines (CD )

As an indie post-punk band, Hello Fever is far from embodying the linear structure and sound of a three-piece act: a singer/guitarist, a drummer, and a bass player! Opting for a more dynamic line-up, all three band members contribute to the vocals and share the spotlight. Hello Fever – Chy Lin (drums, vocals), Sam Farfsing (guitar, vocals), Jonah (bass, vocals) – is a minimal indie group of untrained rockers who have built a collaborating platform in the creation and performance of their music.

On their debut album, Broken Lines (Sound Virus Records), the band has done a tremendous job in bringing out the visual elements of their songs by the contrasts of male/female vocals, the inter-twined melodies, and the rawness of the production. Describing the album’s title, singer-guitarist Sam Farfsing says, “The way that we are influenced and inspired is never like a straight line form one point to another. It’s always like a pile of broken lines.”

Hello Fever’s members hail from both coasts of the USA, adding a multi-dimensional quality to the way they observe their surroundings and make music. While they embrace the energy and the progressive nature of the indie scene in L.A., their sound is heavily influenced by the less self-centered attitude of the east coast, which is another reason why you will not hear any lavish guitar solos on this album.

Broken Lines was recorded by Alex Newport (At the Drive-In, Mars Volta), Hello Fever’s debut album was recorded in LA at Hot Head Recording. “Hot Communication”, “Variety”, and “The Last Time” are great examples of the angular punk that makes this band worth checking out.

Hello Fever has shared the stage with the likes of DFA 1979, Dance Disaster, and Moving Units, and they are a regular at most of the secret spots in LA (the Smell, Il Corral, etc.)
