“Black Ferns authentically invokes the reverb-soaked spectres of late 80’s alternative rock and the post-punk revival.”
Can you imagine spending the last of your days driving the pacific coast highway, in a beat-up black 1961 Lincoln Continental, watching a skyline marked by fire and observing an ocean clamoring to extinguish those flames? Your desired soundtrack would probably be of the utmost tranquility. Breezeless melodies that have the ability to temper the most infernal circumstances. Black Ferns, a two-piece from Seattle, has captured that mood and sound on their latest release.
On this duo’s second album “Devices” (Northern Light Records), Chris Jordan (bass) and Zoran Macesic (vocals/guitar) find themselves drawing comparisons to Love and Rockets and Interpol while maintaining their unique brand of reverb-drenched haze that animates the ghosts of green rooms. Songs that speak of the tumultuous oscillation of love, and the distress of being a social misfit.
Since forming in 2015, Black Ferns has been consistently touring and sharing the stage with great bands such as INVSN, Wolf Alice, Bass Drum of Death, The KVB, Numb.er, Second Still, The Foreign Resort, Dead Leaf Echo, Palm Haze, Moving Units, Heaven, and Panda Riot. Their live shows have been described as arresting, with a light show that invokes a darkened firmament, a perfect accomplice to their sonance.
Black Ferns has charted on 90.3 KEXP, and the song “She Said” was featured on KEXP DJ Cheryl Waters’ Music That Matters Podcast. The single “This Illusion” was featured as Song of the Day on KEXP, as chosen by DJ Kevin Cole, as well as included in the Music That Matters Podcast.
“Devices” is out now.
