Introducing a stunning ode to the 20th anniversary of George Harrison’s passing, Ferris Durden take on another timeless classic, rebuilding While My Guitar Gently Weeps in a beautifully moving way.
The full-band arrangement can be enjoyed in the live setting via the visuals, but the recording itself is just as transporting for the listening – layers of keys, guitar and bass, guided by those ever-raspy, soulful and piercingly beautiful vocals by Paul Wesley.
Soon the beat drops in, the passion rises, and the guitar sound and vocal tone unite hypnotically for a genuinely uplifting, rather euphoric peak that reignites the natural presence and emotion of the original in a powerful manner.
That unmistakable melodic shift, the major-minor sound-play, all stands tall with ease thanks to faultless musicianship and, just as importantly, the absolute commitment and devotion of the players.
Bringing together two favourite indie talents from our past, the release actually showcases production from SJ Warman of the wonderful Stone MGs.
A fantastic collaborative cover – undoubtedly worth a few streams this winter; escape into the moment for a while.
