Today’s song is “Lights Burn Bright” by Silas Fernoy. In the summer of 2010, Joshua Mash was a solo musician playing gigs throughout New York City under the name Shilo Andrews. Previously touting an acoustic hip-hop vibe, Mash set out to revamp his sound. After meeting bassist Jordan Brower by chance at the tequila bar where they both worked, the duo soon found themselves in Mash’s home studio collaborating on new material. Six months later, after resounding feedback from family and friends, Mash and Brower had a 4-song demo and set out to complete their sound.
Enter guitarist Sam Ellner.
As a three-piece, Silas Fermoy’s sound became more abstract and full adding live drums, a double keyboard, and multiple bass effects. Mash’s songwriting skirts the line between fiction and autobiography, weaving narratives together and creating a story that expands from one song to the next.
Drawing on diverse influences such as Radiohead, Bob Marley, Arcade Fire, Beirut, The Cat Empire, and Little Dragon, Silas Fermoy ventured into The End studio to create what would become their highly anticipated debut release, Chapters. With fans at heart, Silas Fermoy released three songs from the upcoming EP for free download on their social networks.
This band has a sound that will instantly click with your ear buds. There is something so mesmerizing about their music that it will be love at first sound. Listen below and for more information check out their official website and Facebook page. - Eat Sleep Breath Music


Damn what a brilliant month of tunes. I really needed two hours to get all the songs on the show that I wanted to. Here are the best songs of April (minus a few). Enjoy.

If any bands/managers/labels etc want their music removed please contact me (chris at allthingsnext dot com) and I’ll promptly remove it. Thank you, bands. Thank you for making music. Thank you for making my life better because of the music you make. I am a passionate music consumer as are my listeners. If you think NEXT streaming music is bad you have it wrong. I am a music maker advocate.

It's not uncommon for musicians to travel to pursue their ambitions and certain cities are thriving hotspots for activity. In the England it's London that attracts people the most, in the US it's various locations in California or Portland if you're on the west coast, or the New York area if you're on the east. Joshua Mash must know the vibes of these places better than most. Originally from London, he moved to California and then to New York where he formed Silas Fermoy with Jordan Brower and Sam Ellner. On April 9th the band release their debut EP 'Chapters', six songs that take in a wide range of influences.

They cite Bob Marley, Radiohead, Beirut and Little Dragon, which sounds like it would make for a strange tasting musical cocktail, but in reality the fact that Silay Fermoy can write pop hooks with a commercial edge makes this mix turn out a whole lot better. Single 'Lights Burn Bright' could be described as indie/rock, but sure enough you get the twang of reggae peeping through and the energy of Little Dragon making this a track that you can dance to as well. From travelling to multiple locations with a multitude of influences Silas Fermoy have created multi-purpose music. - Sound of Confusion


Silas Fermoy is a trio of young guys; Joshua Mash, Jordan Brower, and Sam Ellner all of whom are based in Brooklyn, New York. Although Bromer and Ellner were originally from the New York area, it was their vocalist and keyboardist Mash who moved to California from his home of London, England to persue his passion for music. The three met, began collaborating together, and eventually Silas Fermoy was founded. The three just recently embarked on their first, crowd-sourced/ Kickstarter funded tour that included gigs across the U.S as well as a slot at SXSW.
Chapters is their debut album and although it’s a little short (it contains six tracks and clocks in at around twenty-five minutes), it’s filled with something quite interesting and irresistibly unique; the opening track “Sound Of A Daydream” is bound to strike an almost weirdly aroused curiosity. On the group’s site, they claim to draw sounds from artists like Radiohead, Bob Marley, Arcade Fire, and even Beirut. Now, although you can sort of draw some similarities, it can also be a little tough to clearly draw a connection between the four. However, it would seem that Silas Fermoy could be in the midst of that missing link.
“Sound Of A Daydream” introduces us to a groovy, head-bobbing baseline followed by a retro 80’s-esque, alien infused synth. A frantic drum beat comes along and with that we are offered our first hearing of Mash’s soft, harmonizing voice that fits in almost perfectly with the music itself and offers a nice touch that helps bring all the music together. The album has a really awesome timeless feel that is layered and experimented upon with very genre-defying influences and sounds. It is a great formula and each song plays and stands out in its own way. ‘Hideout’ slows us down just a bit and is sprinkled with easy to dig hooks and cleverly placed keys. “Lights Burn Bright” includes great song structure, consistently building up and stripping down at just the right moments.

Ending off on a track that softly carries you through, “Learn To Fly Again” brings with it an epic guitar solo that seems to be missing from many other great acts these days and helps further bring to light that Silas Fermoy is just a band playing music that they truly, truly enjoy. They do not seem to be playing for anyone else but themselves and it is great to hear. There is a really cool DIY vibe on the whole record itself and you can almost picture the smiles on the faces that these guys must bear when they are together jamming out.
