Melancholy Fever is the follow-up to Bellemare’s 2014 debut EP Live and Die. On the new album Bellemare worked with producers Mitchell Froom (Paul McCartney, Elvis Costello), Tony Berg (Nickel Creek), Paul O’Duffy (Amy Winehouse), and Busbee (Ingrid Michaelson).
On her inspiration for the new album, Genevieve says, “I found inspiration in my anxiety from this album and I realized I was writing a lot of the songs to help myself deal with the feelings and emotions I was having…It’s like I’m talking to myself in the lyrics, trying to work things out so that I can handle them better. While it’s bracingly honest and intimate, Melancholy Fever ultimately leans toward a warm, wistful mood reflected in the album’s title. I gravitated towards the title because when putting this album together, I couldn’t seem to get away from a song that was kind of dark… So melancholy felt very fitting. Fever as well, because I was almost unable to escape that melancholy vibe I kept putting into the microphone.”
Watch her official video for the single “Shenanigans” above!
Melancholy Fever is also available on iTunes and most digital service providers.
