Four friends making rock music in their attic sounds like the premise for a pretty good indie film, but in Belfast, it is where Shane, Danzilla, Jack and Sam formed rock band Ferals. Finding space in a tiny attic to play together every week, they soon realised they would be a pretty excellent band and began writing songs.
Cue 2018 and they are crashing into the scene with their debut single ‘Brendan Rodgers.’ Ferals first offering grows from rhythmic guitar and ethereal vocals to big epic sounds and overlapping melodies that fans of Biffy Clyro and Queens of the Stone Age will love. Today Ferals unveil a new video to accompany the track premiering here on XS Noize.
It’s a slick mix of heartfelt atmosphere and driving energy – an exciting addition to the Irish rock scene that has brought us ASIWYFA , Otherkin and TOUTS, which are not only similar in sound to but a part of the reason why Ferals formed. “ Watching all our favourite local bands take themselves to heights we didn’t know were reachable in this country has totally inspired us, and gave us a beacon of hope that we could be successful.” The heart behind it all is clear to see, close friends making music about their anger towards football managers, inspired by the bands around them to take it further.
