Song review: Free Energy, 'Electric Fever'

March 06, 2012|By Matt Pais | RedEye Sound Board

What: The first single from the Philadelphia rockers' upcoming sophomore album "Love Sign." The band's debut "Stuck on Nothing" was one of the most purely enjoyable records of 2010.

Recommended if you like: Cowbell, singing along with choruses, and Bachman-Turner Overdrive's "You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet." It's impossible not to hear the similiarities. Does that get in the way of being thrilled for the band's ridiculously hummable, air guitar-worthy return? Not at all.

Avoid if you hate: Fun, summer, driving with the windows down and the music loud.

Worth noting: Paul Sprangers should probably stop singing lines like, "I feel it coming alive." They were all over "Stuck on Nothing," and we get the idea.

Listen to the song here.
