«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.
