The first thing that caught my attention about “Ride the Wave” is the choreographed melodic passages by the band. The second thing that really caught me was the way the vocalist really goes all out in the rock and roll style. Fast forward to the virtuoso guitar solo at the 2:00 mark and you’ve got yourself a killer rock song. Going straight from classic rock to a bit left of center is the layers of vocals that could be compared to barbershop quartets, to hear an a capella version of “Ride the Wave” would be an excellent time.
Hailing from Nashville this classic rock sounding outfit is the kind of bands you always to be playing at your local watering hole. I could compare them to acts like Red Sky Mary from the northeast, if Sweet Fever keeps doing what they’re doing I can see a lot of people getting onboard. Also they look like rockstars.
