Riding high off the success of her debut single Broken, Tatums second single Fever sees her come out of 2020s gate swinging, expertly reinforcing the singers unique alternative pop edge, ahead of the release of her debut EP.
The songs melodic minimalism allows Tatums superb, shadowy vocal to stand at the forefront, while her weighty lyrics talk about the anguishing ambivalence of being in love with someone who is wholly destructive on every level. The Divine Wind she references is a metaphor for the unhealthy union, which is doomed to end in pain and suffering.

“This song is about letting the wrong person into your life, about loving someone who is dangerous. Intense love can feel like a fever, but a fever is usually a sign of a deeper infection. Its ultimately a kind of ruinous attraction. It talks about being sucked into a noxious relationship but because it looks so beautiful and the attraction is so powerful, it becomes an almost poetic and beautiful one way ticket to failure, Tatum confesses when asked about the meaning behind her poignant ballad.
