Ferris & Sylvester have released a live video for their new song ‘Good Man’, taken from the brand new EP, ‘I Should Be On A Train’ out now via LAB Records.
The video premiered with Clash, who said,
“Ferris & Sylvester have built their own world. A group whose sound relies on a near telepathic understanding of one another, this facet gives their live shows a palpable sense of edge. Cut-throat riffs with storming songwriting, Ferris & Sylvester recently returned with a full EP, the visceral ‘I Should Be On A Train EP’.
“’Good Man’ was a real highlight, the point where their blues guitar sound – reminiscent of The Kills in places – breaks down the walls, and claims fresh territory as its own. There’s no crowd for this live clip, and that only seems to add to the intensity, placing all focus on the central duo. Stark and gripping, it’s a fantastic performance, one that taps into their potent chemistry.”
‘Good Man’ features groove-laden riffs intertwined with Ravi Shankar influences. It has been produced with Ryan Hadlock (The Lumineers, Brandi Carlile, The Strokes) at Bear Creek Studios in Seattle and gives a taste of what to expect from Ferris & Sylvester’s debut album next year.
The live video was recorded at London’s Streatham Space Project during lockdown. The band are now playing a sold out socially distanced show at the venue on Saturday (Oct 31st).
Regarding the song Ferris & Sylvester say,
“This song has rage and hunger at its centre, highlighting the hypocrisy of what it means to be a man. The live version needed to be bold and unapologetic, just like the record. We had a lot of fun making this. With no sitar player around during lockdown, we went back to basics with our blues trio setup. We’re so happy this song found its feet in this project and cannot wait to take it on tour next year.”
‘Good Man’ is taken from the band’s new EP ‘I Should Be on A Train’. The EP is an outstanding expansive record from the pair, which has seen them achieve great critical acclaim from the likes of American Songwriter, Sunday People, EARMILK, 1883 Magazine, Maverick Magazine, Far Out Magazine, Songwriting Magazine and many more. It has also received strong radio support from BBC Radio 2 as well as BBC Introducing who featured the band as their ‘Artist Of The Week’.
The ‘I Should Be On A Train’ EP finds Ferris & Sylvester thriving in the world’s state of transition, taking the opportunity to explore new territories, spurred on by the success of the past and looking forward to the future.
