builds from a quiet, self-destructive thought and becomes an outcry
of both suffering and delight, led by Archie Sylvester's powerful scorching guitar.
With their combination of roots and blues, the duo deliver a sound which sits somewhere between Jack White and First Aid Kit:
"Sickness was one of the first songs we wrote together. It came quickly and felt powerful almost instantly.
"It's about human relationships - the power and the frustration - and the desire to throw it all away.
"We recorded the track on our last day in the studio with producer Michael Rendall and continued into the early hours; it felt important to keep it raw and let the song speak for itself.
"Everything you hear was tracked live and a lot of it was recorded in one take, the guitar solo and vocals for instance. It's our proudest piece of work to date."
The duo will be playing
Brighton's Prince Albert
as part of their first headline tour of the UK and Ireland.
"It feels so surreal to be announcing our first headline tour. We've done over a hundred shows this year across the UK and Europe, shared the stage with our heroes and met so many brilliant people. And now we get to do our own tour."
Ferris & Sylvester play The Prince Albert, Brighton, on Tuesday 12th February 2019. CLICK HERE for tickets.
