Formed in 2012 as a medium for Simone Schmidt (One Hundred Dollars, The Highest Order) to write, record and produce original material unencumbered by outside aesthetic or group ideology, Fiver is dynamic, sometimes personal, and undoubtedly political.
Lost The Plot, the debut Fiver album released last year via Triple Crown Audio, is a haunting engagement of spirit and soul. Creating a delicate balance between broodingly instropective and frenetically outgoing, the album examines the way love and people change during times of sickness, as well as connections between work, its impact on the land and its contribution to illness. The album also features a song about the life and times of WWE wrestler, The Undertaker.
