South African born singer-songwriter Jeri Silvermanoffered a set at NYC’s Pianos. I was mildly intrigued; frankly, there are a lot of singer-songwriters. To stand out in this, one must have something of artistic depth, or risk being lost in the crowd. With this in mind, I went to Pianos to hear what she had to offer.
New music video for The Fever. Lifted from Jeri Silverman’s debut EP Leaflike (released nationwide in 2014), the video is an artistic collaboration between Silverman and Czech artist Radka Salcmannova.
The video follows the surreal, dreamlike quality of Salcmannova’s previous works, evoking a sense that the Fever comes from the darkest reaches of Silverman’s subconscious. The track has a haunting, restless quality, balancing the singer’s poetic sensibilities with electronic grit, and folky intimacy—a sound honed with producer Saul Simon MacWilliams (Ingrid Michaelson Band).
