«Dreamy, deceptively lovely folk-pop that tickles the ear and softens you up for the thornier sentiments contained therein. Pretty as a California sunset. Gorgeously dusky singing voice and immaculate harmonies.» ROLLING STONE

In early 2016 London based duo Ferris & Sylvester's alt-country tinged fine harmony and superbly crafted songwriting caught the ear of legendary producer Youth (Paul McCartney/ The Verve/ Beth Orton). He invited them to to record at his studio in Spain, where they recorded their soon to be released debut EP, 'Save Yourself'. Greenwich Village 1966 is a clear reference in their catchy folk sound, from the Lovin' Spoonful to Mamas & Papas, with contemporary nods to the likes of Laura Marling and Conor Oberst completing the picture.

Benedict Benjamin is Ben Rubinstein, formerly of The Mariner’s Children and Peggy Sue (Wichita). His debut album ‘Night Songs’ is a collection of timeless compositions recorded in a series of churches, bedrooms and kitchens across London and Kent with producer Dan Blackett (Landshapes, Bella Union). Ben is first and foremost a classic songwriter, his wonderfully cinematic songs are shot through with the heartbreaking swoon of Roy Orbison, the soothing harmonies of the Everly Brothers and the honesty of Jeff Tweedy. His music undercuts the dreamlike beauty of early 60s pop with lyrics frank and poetic, taking you to a David Lynch-like world that makes the heart swell and the head spin.
