Premiere: Ferals – The Low

Screen Shot 2019-02-05 at 6.01.30 PM

The island of Ireland has always batted out out of its league when it comes to riff-fuelled post-rock.

Right up there with the acts flying the flag in the North right now is Belfast-based threesome Ferals. Listing Foals, Biffy Clyro, Deftones and North Coast instrumental machine And So I Watch You From Afar as their main influences, the Zool Records-affiliated band have re-emerged with their new single, ‘The Low’.

Doubling up as the band’s strongest single effort to date – and accompanied with a suitably emphatic video – the song strikes a fist-clenched mid-point between low-end riff slinging, gang vocals and soaring tremolo worship.

Have a first look and listen below.

Ferals play alongside Dead Horse Jive and Gnarkats at Belfast’s McHughs on Saturday, February 16.
