Astrid S – Hot Fever Dream 

Astrid S is giving us hot fever dreams with her new single, “Hot Fever Dream,” and believe me, the waves are so hot that fans are already declaring that Astrid S should be a bigger artist.

I’m on a honeymoon / I’m out in hyper drive / I’m on the wave you making, giving me a body high,” she sings, her smooth voice just sailing over the lyrics and the head-nodding beat. “It’s right here in this room / I’ve seen it in your eyes / I know a place where your mine.”

The song is basically about having the hots for someone that you dream about those moments when you guys can be together to satisfy your “hot fever dreams.” 

In the chorus, she sings that she’s sure she’s not the only one who’s having these cravings and sensations, “You keep showing up so casually / Act so cool, but I swear / That you’re following me.”

The chorus and the background vocal works make this song just one you really don’t want to stop playing. It’s catchy, it’s fun, and it can make you hot depending on the mood you’re in when listening to the song. Let’s not forget the beautiful vocal work that does more than complement the beat and the lyrics by elevating both.

While I can’t claim to be a hardcore fan, I’ve come across several of Astrid S’s songs and her soothing voice just manages to pull me in every single time. And yet her vocals on “Hot Fever Dream” still managed to surprise me.

At the moment, there’s no accompanying music video – though it’s possible one could be released later on pending fan interest – but the visualizer still offers us a tantalizing slice into Astrid S’s sensual world.

Her upcoming studio album Joyride will be her first full-length project since 2020’s Leave It Beautiful, which gave birth to the singles “Dance, Dance, Dance,” and “It’s Ok If You Forget Me.”

“Hot Fever Dream” was preceded by three singles, “Two Hands”, “First to Go”, and “Oh Emma,” which she clarified was not about her best friend Emma. Joyride will be released on May 24 through Universal Island Records and will be available on streaming, digital download, and vinyl LP.

Speaking on writing the album, she said, “The pieces fell into place after I wrote the first song for Joyride. It’s a road trip album and a tribute to childhood memories and all the hours in the car with dad.”
