Multi culti pop
Acey Monaro hails from Australia, but she's lived in Austin since meeting her now-husband. He's in the band, as are a couple other Austin musical stalwarts. And while Go Fever is something of an Acey Monaro joint, it is a band that stands on its own.
Whatever the sound, Go Fever plays tight pop songs that simply explode with joy. Monaro is a somewhat understated singer, but her slightly underhanded delivery is a fine counterpoint to the relentlessly bounding music. She lends some heft and color to the solid musical base. The combination is often intoxicating.
And so, what we have here is something like an Austin version of a British Columbian pop band. Led by an Australian. Does that make sense? I have a feeling I'm making this far too complicated, which is a mistake that Go Fever never makes. Steady on, with feeling.
