Fever High Unveils 'Good Advice' Video, With Help From a Jeff Goldblum Rant: Exclusive Premiere
Prior to releasing their debut studio album FHNY on Nov. 10, Brooklyn-based indie-pop duo Fever High -- comprised of Reni Lane and Anna Nordeen -- sent one of the album’s tracks to their friend, actor and jazz singer Jeff Goldblum, with a simple request: “Improvise something.”
“To my delight, he sent us an eight-minute rant of hilarious anecdotes about bad advice he’d been given in his career,” Lane tells Billboard.
The song is, ironically, titled “Good Advice,” and bits and pieces of Goldblum’s rant wound up on the final version of the three-and-a-half-minute track. Goldblum’s short rant touches on indigo shirts and Fiddler on the Roof, among other things. The duo was so impressed by Goldblum’s addition that not only did he get a featured credit on the song, but Fever High chose it as their lead single from the set.
Lane and Goldblum had already been introduced before they collaborated. “We bonded over our mutual love of jazz piano and stayed in touch,” she said, citing Goldblum's jazz troupe, Jeff Goldblum & The Mildred Snitzer Orchestra.
The electro-pop jam, which Nordeen says “is about standing up to everyone's opinions about how they think you should act and live your life,” has been a surprising success since its release, as it was featured on Spotify’s New Music Friday and Fresh Electronic playlists.
The Jurassic Park actor doesn’t make a cameo in the video, directed by David Doobinin, but the colorfully trippy video features the duo dancing and singing along to the track in alleys, streets and outside a 7-Eleven.
