The Fernweh’s eponymous debut album was one of the genuine word of mouth (And social media) stories of 2018; combining to die for melodies with peculiarly timeless forms and wizard song writing, the Liverpool pysch-rock collective made many friends with it.
Keeping their promise to return with new music as soon as possible, the band release the Sunrise EP on the Coral’s Skeleton Key label on March 29th. Long a live favourite, Sunrise was originally recorded by The Who in 1967 but updated for this century it’s now – appropriately for Spring – a delicate sunlit jaunt with nods to Beirut and Avi Buffalo.
Sunrise is backed with album staple New Brighton Sigh and the EP’s release coincides with a string of live dates supporting The Zutons and a prestigous slot on the bill at the Doves Teenage Cancer Trust gig at the Royal Albert Hall. You can listen to Sunrise below and catch them live in the next few weeks.
