Pilot Touhill – ‘Fever’

Born in White Plains, New York. but now living in Southern California, Pilot Touhill is on a mission to spread the good vibes. A singer/songwriter and animal rights activist, he volunteers at local animal shelters and rescues, as well as with his favourite non-profit organisation, Mercy For Animals, which focuses on protecting farm animals. 100% of the CD sales from his newest album, ‘Quiet Now’ will go to the charity. His latest track, ‘Fever’, is a catchy pop song with a hint of reggae, that’s guaranteed to hook his listeners in.

The story for ‘Fever’ is about a boy forever chasing a girl who simply won’t put him in first place. Sung from the male perspective, the repetition of lines like “ain’t no other man” and “don’t wanna be your back door man” share the intentions of our transparent protagonist. He believes in their love, but she doesn’t share the same view. Starting off with a strummed ukulele, we’re quickly feeling the summertime vibes, and layers of sweet harmonies, reggae style percussion, and rich organs take us into the chorus. The video for ‘Fever’ was shot at Thousand Step Beach, in Laguna Beach, California, and directed by Eduardo Ramierez, who creates a visual piece which invokes in the viewer a longing for California, and a gratefulness for that around them in those who are lucky enough to live in the Golden State.
