Critically acclaimed and fast-rising London duo Ferris & Sylvester have released their brand new single ‘Burning River’. The single is featured in Spotify’s ‘New Music Friday’ playlist today and premiered with BBC Introducing as the ‘Upload Of The Week’ on Sarah Gosling’s show, which was followed by the duo’s second live session with the station this year.
Me and My Friends play soulful, poignant, and gloriously danceable music, subtly referencing many styles, including vintage Ghanaian highlife, Jamaican roots and Afro-Brazilian folk. The UK-based quintet create a timeless sound with a global outlook, performed with an infectious energy, and the result is instantly recognisable, highly original and truly genre-defying.
