“Innovative electro-punk” – GigSlutz
“Groundbreaking, #onestowatch” – Louder Than War
Feral Five make electro-punk dance music with bite, fusing snarling guitars, stabbing synths, and ferocious beats.
Raised by wolves on a diet of punk rock, disco and roots, the duo have been championed by BBC Radio 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq and Gideon Coe, Eddy Temple-Morris on The Remix, and John Kennedy on X-Posure at Radio X. They’ve been BBC 6 Recommends Track of the Week with ‘Kiss’, a slice of sleaze disco with the poet Equinox.
Electronic legend Martyn Ware (The Human League / Heaven 17 / B.E.F.) picked them for the National Portrait Gallery Picasso-inspired night he curated in January 2017, and they released a politically-charged EP Man Cat Doll Machine of songs they wrote for the event.
Feral Five are singer/guitarist Kat, and bassist, composer, and throat-grabbing beats creator Drew. They’re from London and Kent, write, mix and produce at Feral HQ and their music features in acclaimed drag queens film Dressed As A Girl.
Obsessed with science, they create songs about the dark human side of tech, as well as love, lust and madness. They’ve collaborated with world leading 3D designer Francis Bitonti on ‘Rule 9’, sculpting synths, vocals and beats around his algorithms. They predicted #3dprintinghumans in their song ‘3D’, sampled 3D printers and created 3D printed artwork, also using a 3D printer as an instrument when they played Music Tech Fest in London.
The Ferals are in demand for their production skills and have remixed artists like Sisteray, and Frank Turner favourites deux furieuses. Their song ‘Void’ is on the compilation album #MoreInCommon in aid of Hope Not Hate.
Recent live shows include The Lexington, Shuffle Festival, Wake Up Gigs, Oslo Hackney, Prince Albert Brighton, GigSlutz at The Finsbury, Nasty Women, Clit Rock, FuturePunkFest, and supporting Test Dept: Redux, and Shriekback. Feral Five will support Black Grape at Brighton’s Concorde 2 in November.
