Ferris & Sylvester have released their brand new single ‘Everyone Is Home’ via LAB Records. The single premiered with Clash Magazine who called it an “isolation anthem”.
The duo wrote and produced the song from home during the lockdown and it gives an honest and raw reflection of this uncertain time. It recognises the loneliness yet also celebrates the togetherness, bravery and resilience that has come with it.
‘Everyone Is Home’ is a tender and heartfelt song, which beautifully captures their unique blend of Americana and blues. Their home-recorded harmonies, guitar and bass have laid the foundation for the new single, which is accompanied by remotely recorded drums and strings, each capturing the true spirit of lockdown creativity.
Regarding the new single Ferris & Sylvester say, “This is a song about hope. We’ve been writing constantly during the lockdown and we felt we needed to get this song out to people. We produced the track in our home studio and asked some amazing musicians to record remotely for us, which makes the project feel very unique to the situation. We recorded the last few lines of the track outside, and despite the isolation, you can hear the birds singing and the world around us. We hope this will bring comfort to those still separated from loved ones and show that we are all together in this.”
The duo gave fans the first taste of ‘Everyone Is Home’ during their Friday night Facebook live stream, which Ferris & Sylvester have done every week at 8 pm throughout the lockdown period due to popular demand. Ferris & Sylvester have used this weekly show to raise funds for independent music venues across the UK in a battle to keep their doors open.
