From Cleveland, Ohio comes a five-piece band called Ottawa. Ottawa is comprised of vocalist Dale DeLong, guitarists Will Hooper and Tim Czajka, bassist Chris Williams, and Steve Crobar on drums. Ottawa presents us with a music video entitled “Fever.” “Fever” was filmed at the Bad Racket Recording Studio located in the band’s hometown. The song begins with clean rhythm guitar and bass, followed by drums. Immediately, the song becomes a head-nodder, and soon enough, you’ll find yourself tapping your foot.
Ottawa creates a blend of garage rock and pop elements. Their influences include Tom Waits, Lou Reed, Smashing Pumpkins, and Portugal. The Man. Relax and enjoy as DeLong soulfully croons. The band cohesively plays with soaring guitar lines, hard-hitting bass and precise drumming. “Fever” will surely get the adrenaline pumping through your veins, leaving you wanting more. Ottawa certainly has the potential to make it big. They are a rare gem slowly creeping out of the dirt and ready to give everyone’s ears a taste of refreshing garage pop music.
