TRACK PREMIERE: RACHEL FANNAN “FEVER PITCH”

Longtime L.A. fixture Rachel Fannan just joined Black Mountain—great for them, great for her—but she's got a solo album of her own coming that promises great things, too. Forthcoming The Marigold Experiment (out Aug. 16) is something unexpected from someone who's always played with expectations, and this "Fever Pitch" (Spotify/Apple Music out now!) isn't about heat or speed.

It's awesome in the old school sense—like that feeling up looking up at the stars and recognizing there's so much more emptiness than light. "Fever Pitch"'s atmospheric lyric video was directed by Anthony Ferrara and you can check in with Fannan and her developing Marigold Experiment here.
