Track Of The Day: Feral Five – ‘Get A Grip’

Having most recently beguiled our ears with last single ‘EGO’, and with vibrant live shows with Black Grape and Miss Eaves under their belt, long-term faves Feral Five are back with an enticing new single.

A song for when enough is enough, ‘Get A Grip’ doesn’t hold back as it builds in tension, propelled by glitchy throbbing beats, whirring electro-fused hooks and a fierce driving energy. As the soaring Debbie Harry-reminiscent vocals of Kat ooze shades of ’80s pop, these collide with an innovative futuristic musicality and captivating psychedelic allure to create an utterly immersive and impressively unique sonic delight from this forward-thinking duo.

 

Mastered by Katie Tavini, ‘Get A Grip’ is out 27th November on all platforms.

Track Of The Day: Feral Five – ‘Pet Show’

Having previously wowed us with their unique, vibrant live show at The Finsbury, and recently supported Black Grape in Brighton, London/Kent based duo Feral Five are back to enchant our ears with new single ‘Pet Show’.

As a glitchy, other-worldly soundscape flows, ‘Pet Show’ is a wonderfully weird fusion of sounds, set in a world of illicit exotic creatures, working in underground bionic cat cafés and shady robo-companion bars. Pulsating with the deep, resonant vocals of front-woman Kat and an immense danceable beat, it’s a truly beguiling, yet slightly unnerving, work of forward-thinking art. With its whirring, electronic hooks and ethereal twinkling melodies, ‘Pet Show’ therefore showcases the duo’s innovative electro punk once again. Of the track, the band explain: “… it conjures up future subcultures and is inspired by developments in emotional AI and experimental beings, and the primal urge to party.

 

With striking art work by leading anthro artist Strype, ‘Pet Show’ is out 7th December via Primitive Light Recordings.
