Bio

Raised by wolves on a diet of punk rock, disco and roots, Kat and Drew Five make their own brand of art-punk feral dance music.

They've been described as 'electropunk disco' and 'Patti Smith meets Hot Chip at Dalston Superstore'. Feral Five's influences range from DAF and Killing Joke to Porter Robinson, Hot Chip and Grace Jones.

Their first track 'Skin' was featured alongside artists such as Imogen Heap, Martyn Ware (The Human League, BEF, Heaven 17), Carter Tutti, and Scanner, on The Dark Outside's 'A Broadcast to the Trees' sound art event in the Galloway Forest, Scotland.

Ruth Barnes played 'Skin' on The Other Woman show on Amazing Radio. Her verdict on the band? "I love them!"

It was a case of opposites attract when film composer and dubstep beats creator Drew, and agit-punk singer Kat met at The Premises Studios in London. They hooked up for an edgy dance collaboration with a black heart.

Kat had a dark secret. She'd made it on to the top present-day political pop songs list compiled by rock critic and Nirvana biographer Everett True. The track “Hack Attack” that she penned and sang for Suburban Mousewife, joined The Manic Street Preachers and Lady Gaga in his top 20. She was writing feisty songs with titles like Gulags For Slags for her all grrrl garage punk band, but she also loved disco, dub and dubstep.

Drew was composing film music, singing in Sweet Billy Pilgrim’s choir on their album, playing bass in bands and putting out his throat-grabbing dance beats, but wanted to ramp up his sound. When he sent Kat a bass-heavy track out of the blue that he’d imagined her slashed velvet Nico-esque voice on, she jumped at the chance of working with him.

They wrote new tunes, kicked them around, mangled, strangled and shaped them to come up with a sound that twists the jitteriness of modern life into lyrical dance compulsion.

It’s a 50/50 musical partnership with a fair bit of wrestling over how much synth and how much guitar, and now they’re even swapping instruments. They haven’t kicked each other. Yet.

They are currently in the studio working on their next track 'Strung Out', 'and are about to record with Tim Elsenberg from Sweet Billy Pilgrim at the controls.

Individually, Kat and Drew have years of experience playing venues such as the Artrocker Stage (The Great Escape) at The Hope in Brighton, Camden Barfly, The Victoria - Dalston, The Ivy House - Dulwich, The Wilmington, The Stag Theatre - Sevenoaks.

Feral Five made their live debut to a packed venue in Hoxton at the end of 2012 and are lining up gigs for their next release.
