Feral Ghost debut creates a storm
Only a few weeks on from the release of London band Feral Ghost's debut album, it’s already attracting international critical acclaim and awards.
Reviews and radio stations from around the world have singled out A Gathering Storm for its consistently strong melodies, stadium sized hooks, superb musicianship and classic pop rock sound.
“Feral Ghost will win you over without even trying,” declares Music Emissions.
“Obviously many will fall head over heels with Feral Ghost,” says Rock N’ Roll View. “This is one band that’s set up rather well for mainstream success this year.”
The five piece’s album has been nominated for best CD of the year by Indie Music Digest, which called it “an impressive debut statement that clearly proves this band is a force to be reckoned with in UK and beyond”.
Feral Ghost have also picked up two A&R Gold Awards from social networking site Beat 100 for their videos for standout tracks ‘Secret Eyes’ and ‘Gabrielle’.
Take any one of the album’s ten songs and it’s instantly clear why the band’s hook-laden, heartfelt music is attracting so much attention, and why radio stations from America to Australia are making room in their busy playlists for a Feral Ghost track.
"We’re encouraged with all the positive feedback we're getting, and so soon after the release. Deep down all artists, if they're being honest, want above all recognition for their music " says lead singer and songwriter Danny Warwick.
"We've been working really hard for two years to make an album that would be something special and it’s great to finally start getting validation for that.”
The band produced the album themselves but the whole process was a very natural one, with the five members bringing their own personal influences together in an organic way to create the Feral Ghost sound.
