'Separate' sees the three-piece take on a new direction.
Alt-rock trio Ferals have released a new video for their single 'Separate'. An attempt to capture the reality of being caught in the middle of love collapsing around you, the song is aggressively cathartic, constantly teetering on the edge. Musically, it’s driving and intentionally more uplifting than the lyrical content woven through the track.
The track began to form when songwriter Shane McMullan was a child. "This song is an exploration of my experience of being a child of divorce," McMullan explains.
"Two people who were once blissfully in love, now feel nothing and wish to go their separate ways. They may separate but can never truly be completely split from each other as there is this one living, breathing thing that will forever tie them together,"
The soundtrack to a once-familiar world crashing around your ears, ‘Separate’ takes on deliberately obtuse and contradictory shapes – huge riffs and spiralling rhythms power thoughtful and deliberate lyricism, while confident melodies and instrumentation contradict the disturbed delivery. The visuals encapsulate the same feeling of separation, played out on a global scale amidst the debacle of Brexit.
