    Louisville indie rock band The Fervor recently released a three-song EP, “Nightfall in the Kali Yuga,” marking their first return to recording since “Arise, Great Warrior” five years ago. The name is a hint to its darker, edgier sound — In Hindu scriptures, the kali yuga is similar to what Christian tradition calls the “end times,” an apocalyptic era in which the world has spiraled off course into strife and discord.

    The atmosphere of looming disaster is set in the first ominously throbbing drumbeat and runs through “Sweet Thing,” with Natalie Felker’s pure rock vocals arching over the buzz and blur of guitars. This mood is sustained in “Power of Friends” and “Fearless.” The lyrics are a little threatening, with a sometimes ominous tone that makes you feel like you’ve been invited into the Hotel California – haunting, but exerting an irresistible pull.

    The songs of “Nightfall” have a hypnotic quality, with driving rhythms and solid hooks that create the perfect accompaniment to summer nights. You can purchase The Fervor’s new EP on Bandcamp and see them live at Headliners on June 25 when they join Frederick the Younger in support of Wussy.
