The lead singer of the band is called FERNE. She is accompanied by Gabe on guitar, Sam on bass, and Alea on drums. This band is unique because it is not common to see a ¾ female indie band. The members of FERNE (apart from Alea) met by chance being randomly grouped together to perform at a showcase at the end of induction week at Kingston University.
The three became best mates and Alea, Sam’s friend, joined to make the band complete. The four have been touring around London, writing songs, and playing gigs together ever since. The song was written by lead singer Ferne herself and was recorded at Audiohaus studios in Notting Hill, London. The song was mastered by Felix Davis (a close contact of the band) at Metropolis studios in London. Fun fact: Ferne had the flu while recording the vocals. She still slayed though. This song is about Ferne’s boyfriend. Before him she never thought she would end up in a healthy relationship and when he came along she was like “woah please stay here in my life” (spoiler alert: he did).
She wrote the song using little motifs from their first dates such as the record store in Kingston where they met, the district line trains, and staring at the walls when they ran out of things to watch on tv. And yes, he knows the song is about him. Starting off strong, FERNE was featured on the UK’s very own BBC introducing and BBC radio 6. Go check out their 5th single for some new summer vibes.
