While the music from Ferris & Sylvester is not the country sound many fans are used to, the lyrics in many of their songs will bring Kacey Musgraves to mind, There are moments that might make you think ot Maren Morris,. Butn, somewhere hiding i every song they sing, you will find yourself hearing 60’s folk music. Each song on their new EP, “I Should Be on A Train” is uniquely Ferris & Sylvester.
This duo managed to take an old standard, “With A Little Help From My Friends,” and turn it into a song that seems like it could have been written solely for them. The title track, “I Should Be On A Train”, is also the opening track. Great harmonies and tempo changes in this one.
The new EP from the award-winning duo finds the pair expanding on their unique blend of Americana, folk and blues with psychedelic touches, as found in the latest single ‘Knock You Down’, while there’s groove-laden riffs and Ravi Shankar influences in the likes of ‘Good Man’.
The highly acclaimed band have continued to receive huge critical praise with the new songs from the upcoming EP, particularly in the UK and US, including the likes of American Songwriter, Far Out Magazine, Sunday People, Maverick Magazine and many more. It’s also received strong radio support from Radio 2 and seen the band featured as BBC Introducing’s ‘Artist Of The Week’.
The I Should Be On A Train EP follows from their highly praised Made In Streatham EP in 2018, which has received over four million streams and saw them receive press support from the likes of Rolling Stone, NPR, MOJO, The Guardian, Metro, The Independent, The Sun, Clash and many more. They also receive radio support from Radio 1, BBC 6Music, Radio 2, Radio X and BBC Introducing, which also saw them complete a live session at Maida Vale.
