Ahead of their myriad festival appearances this summer, London duo Ferris and Sylvester have officially released their live cover of Waterloo Sunset following its reception on BBC Radio 2 :

It’s an effective duet, drifting in with a gentle opening, contrasting with more robust driving rhythm as it picks up pace throughout, almost an opposite to the meandering structure of the original.  It’s a track that has aged incredibly well, in fact, it’s possibly more representative of London now.  The band say “We chose this song because we think it absolutely encapsulates what it means to be young, lost and living in London“.  So, you can think of this track in the summer, when there are millions of people swarming like flies around Waterloo Underground, and you need a little paradise…
