Americana duo Ferris & Sylvester have released their new single ‘London’s Blue’ which is from their forthcoming EP ‘Made In Streatham’ set for release on February 2nd. With support from Spotify who featured it on their ‘New Music Friday’ playlist upon delay of release and Napster’s ‘New & Good’ playlist, the song is immediately uplifting. Featuring the pair’s intertwining harmonies and deep south feel with a smack of 60s Beatles toe-tapping nostalgia. With finger-clicking, slide guitar, walking baselines this track will definitely blast away the post-holiday blues.
Regarding the song Ferris & Sylvester say, “This is one of our favourite songs to play live, so it felt only right to include this in our Made In Streatham project. Despite the humming, the clicking and the jolly feel to it, this song is all about those days when you think everyone around you is selfish and out to get you… we love a bit of irony. We wanted the song to sound like an old blues song, with the trumpet and the guitar, but to be really relevant to life in London today. When you move somewhere new for the first time – like London – it’s hard not to observe people and how different their behaviour is from yours or what you’re used to.”
Ferris & Sylvester had a busy 2017 featuring on Rolling Stone Magazine’s 10 New Artists You Need To Know list, while also receiving praise from The Independent and gaining great support from BBC Radio 2 and BBC Introducing. They released their debut EP ‘The Yellow Line’ and recent singles ‘Better In Yellow’ and ‘The Room’ which capture the duo’s life in Streatham, London, and feature on their upcoming EP ‘Made In Streatham’.
