Feral Five make electronica with attitude, sonic elixir for our dystopian C21st.
They’re newly-signed to Reckless Yes for their upcoming album ‘Truth Is The New Gold’ which is due for release in February 2023, on Vinyl, CD and Digital, and features both AI and human voices.
The Ferals glide seamlessly between dance music, experimental electronica, and cinematic landscapes, fusing snarling guitars, sparkling synths, and ferocious beats.
Their future-facing tunes feature on BBC 6 Music, Radio X, and in film, and the duo have been championed by BBC Radio 6 Music’s Chris Hawkins, 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, John Kennedy Radio X X-posure Hot Ones, and voted a Fresh Fave at Tom Robinson’s Fresh On The Net with ‘Get A Grip’.
Feral Five are Kat Five and Drew Five from London and Kent. With Kat majoring on vocals and guitar, and Drew on bass and beats, they also play synths and percussion, and regularly swap instruments as well as finding new ones to play, everything from algorithms to crystals. Both produce, write and mix at Feral HQ, and their music features in acclaimed drag queens movie Dressed As A Girl.
Feral Five’s dynamic live shows feature compelling visuals, and they’ve played Concorde 2 supporting Black Grape, the National Portrait Gallery for electronic legend Martyn Ware, Cro Cro Land festival, Shuffle Festival, Oslo Hackney, Nasty Women Fest, FuturePunkFest, The Lexington, Wake Up Gigs, and supported Test Dept: Redux and Shriekback.

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 the algorithmically-based ‘Rule 9’, predicted #3dprintinghumans in their song ‘3D’, sampling 3D printers and creating 3D printed artwork, and used a 3D printer as an instrument when they played Music Tech Fest.
The Ferals are in demand for their production skills and have remixed artists like Bugeye, Sisteray, and Frank Turner favourites deux furieuses. They feralised Kylie Minogue track ‘Can’t Get You Out Of My Head’ for a God Is In The TV Zine charity album, and their song ‘Void’ is on the compilation album #MoreInCommon in aid of Hope Not Hate.
