Ferris & Sylvester have released the video for their new single ‘The Room’. The song is the first to be taken from their forthcoming EP Made In Streatham, out on February 2nd, and available as an instant-grat with pre-orders of the EP.
‘The Room’ is a beautiful slice of autobiographical Americana, detailing the pair’s life in Streatham, London.
Regarding the video Ferris & Sylvester say, “The video was filmed in Streatham Hill, where the song was written and recorded. It follows a couple’s relationship over the course of a year. Shot from one angle in one room, you see the ups and downs, the hopes and disappointments throughout the changing seasons. Sam Rookes did a great job of directing the film, keeping an eye on every detail and creating something real and genuine that is totally relatable.”
Continuing on the single the pair say, “It’s a simple portrayal of what we were going through at the time. It seemed everyone around us was experiencing something similar; bad jobs, bad relationships, long days, crumbling ceilings. We wanted to capture that mix of feeling desperate yet hopeful for the future, something all of us have experienced. We then recorded it in our front room with our favourite musicians. It’s part of a collection of songs that represent a defining moment in time for us, so it was only right to record it our way in our South London flat.”
‘The Room’ is the first taste of new music from Ferris & Sylvester, following the release of their critically acclaimed debut EP The Yellow Line earlier this year. It saw the pair topping Rolling Stone Magazine’s 10 New Artists You Need To Know list, while also receiving praise from The Independent and more along the way.
Ferris & Sylvester are undoubtedly one of the most impressive and exciting new singer/songwriter talents on the UK scene and have had great support from BBC Radio 2 and have been championed by BBC Introducing.
The duo are regulars on the London live scene and have played numerous shows across the capital. The band have just completed a three-week residency at The Spiritual Bar, Camden and have announced three more shows in London. Ferris & Sylvester will play The Monarch, Camden tonight (October 24th), The Bedford, Balham on October 26th and The Harrison, King’s Cross on November 11th.
