Ferris & Sylvester release brand new single ‘Burning River’

Catch Ferris & Sylvester on tour this and next month. 

Critically acclaimed and fast-rising London duo Ferris & Sylvester have released their brand new single Burning River. The single is the first taste of a brand new project from Ferris & Sylvester, a project inspired by writing trips to Iceland and its vast breath-taking landscapes and mesmeric weather patterns.

Produced by Michael Rendall (Pink Floyd, Paul McCartney, Echo & The Bunnymen), Burning River pulls together Icelandic chants, captivating percussion, blues guitars and the pair’s unmistakable harmonies. The result finds Ferris & Sylvester expanding their sound into something that is both their most raw and heartfelt yet.

Regarding the single Ferris & Sylvester say, “For us, this is our most exciting and personal release to date. Burning River is our ode to Iceland. We’d only known each other for a few months, and it was there that we decided to really concentrate on making music together. We drove around the whole island, camping wherever we landed. We’ve been back every summer since and it has become a very powerful, creative place for us. With the help of the incredible producer and friend, Michael Rendall, we feel this song shows our growing journey as songwriters and is a taste of things to come.”

Burning River is the first new track to follow from the duo’s highly acclaimed Made In Streatham EP released earlier this year. The band are currently on the road with Lucy Spraggan before they head off on their headline BBC Introducing tour. Ferris & Sylvester will also be playing with Trampled By Turtles, Welshly Arms and Jerron ‘Blind Boy’ Paxton in November.
