New music: Feral Five’s ‘I Want U’

FF-I-Want-U---2017Feral Five have an electrotastic festive gift for your ears – called I Want U. Frontwoman Kat says, “It’s a feminist song about cutting the crap at Christmas, and features big beats, powerful bass and pulsating synths”.

Following their BBC 6 Music Recommends Track of the Week ‘Kiss’ with Equinox, a Gideon Coe pick, the new song is about people not things, and the trend-busting list of unwanted shabby gifts leads to one conclusion – I Want U.

“I don’t need a fitness band, some running shoes
I don’t need a skipping rope I’ll never use…
You won’t fit down the chimney so get a cab
I’ll start off with the whisky so the time won’t drag”

Acclaimed for their innovative and future-facing music, and their dynamic live gigs, the Ferals have tackled #3Dprintinghumans, worked with sonified algorithms, and played Picasso-inspired songs at the National Portrait Gallery at the invitation of electronic legend Martyn Ware.

Feral Five have had support from DJs across BBC 6 including Steve Lamacq, Tom Ravenscroft, Shaun Keaveny, and Stuart Maconie, as well as from Eddy Temple-Morris on his Remix show.

Kat and Drew Five are a London and Kent-based duo who write, produce, record and mix at Feral HQ buried deep in the woods, and have remixed rising Indie bands Sisteray and deux furieuses.
