The Ferocious Few is a moniker for vagabond songster Francisco Fernandez and a shifting array of soulful cronies who for years have used anarchic guerrilla tactics to take over corners of streets, fairs, party boats, penthouse parties, festivals, US and European tours with sold-out shows, opening sets for Oh Sees at SXSW and for Ty Segall, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Bob Log III, The Jesus & Mary Chain plus many others, not forgetting the 20 dates of Cyndi Lauper’s Memphis Blues Tour.
The Few has alternately been compared to Motorhead (there’s a great picture of Fernandez posing beside his idol Lemmy next to a poker arcade) and a speedy alpha-male Dylan.
The Ferocious Few sets are polished by years of daily performance into a strong and consistent assault of cow-punk. Some people, the ones who most easily respond to this narrative, may call Fernandez a prophet, others merely a jumping fool, but I see him as a troubadour of unlikely relevance and a fine storyteller.
The Ferocious Few are more than good, they’re idiosyncratic in their approach and therefore have no competition”  Aleksey Calvin – Piece Mag

A living legend and a landmark in their native San Francisco, where Fernandez started the band back in 2005, The Ferocious Few are not going to be stopped from testifying their faith in the true, liberating spirit of R’n’R. “Juices“, their album released on cult label Birdman, was defined: “a visceral and viscous testament to their stunningly heartfelt brutality.” (BMI).

A man who cannot stand still, Fernandez moved to Europe in early 2020. Pandemic took him away from stages but didn’t stop his inspiration. Autumn 2021 will see the release of a brand new album for The Ferocious Few, showing a wild, eclectic attitude that shakes and mixes blues, folk, rockabilly, r&b, soul, country and grunge too, but never lacks the band’s distinctive both raw and cool songwriting mark.

My Love” is a tasty appetizer, which will be followed in late Spring 2021 by an exceptional document, a live album, dense with energy and passion, recorded at GAMH in Frisco.
For one full year now we’ve all been missing live music, the thriving, unique, satisfying experience of a great performance.
The Ferocious Few are Ceremony’s masters. It won’t be long before we’ll find them at a corner of a street, party, festival, and they’ll make us feel – again! – alive. 



Breezy, summery, infectious, passionate, “My Love” sounds like a classic banger from r’n’r golden-era, set for these new modern times. The man behind it is American legend Francisco Fernandez, best known as The Ferocious Few.
Relocated to Luxembourg right at the unpredictable eve of the pandemic spread, Francisco choose this song, dear to him, to be his passport for the European audiences.
“My Love” is a song that’s been performed live as a favourite over many years, evolving from an angry song to a song about positive desires. The lyrics, about the longing to be with friends and family again, make even more sense now, in an age in which many of us have experienced forced separation from mates, relatives, lovers.
This is the case for Francisco  who’s been in Europe the whole time of the pandemic, watching his home country in turmoil. The track was recorded with producer Tom Gatti in Luxembourg.
As Fernandez says: “We made this song in hopes to give people something to look forward to

PR : SYNNE SANDEN & ØYVIND BLIKSTAD

SYNNE SANDEN & ØYVIND BLIKSTAD – SWALLOWED EP
Release date: March 05th, 2021
Label: Nordic Records
Hometown: Oslo, Norway
Genre: experimental pop

Official Website // Facebook // You Tube

Swallowed is composed by artist and vocalist Synne Sanden and film composer Øyvind Blikstad. The EP is a collaborative effort of five songs primarily written together and produced by Øyvind Blikstad.
“Skeleton”, written by Synne and remixed by Øyvind Blikstad, was the spark that ignited this fire. Once they discovered how well they worked together, they knew they had to create more. The end result is striking, cinematic sounds with lyrics that touch you at your deepest core.
For this piece Øyvind Blikstad has mixed powerful arrangements for orchestra with dark sound elements and self-built instruments which intertwine with the expressive vocals. This united soundscape dives down deep and grows from the tender and sore to the explosive, strong and magnificent.
At it’s core, the EP is about a destructive relationship. It’s about being broken down by another and the recovery of wounds after leaving the destruction behind. It creates a sense of vulnerability, anger and strength and is an emotional experience which makes you hold your breath in anticipation from start to finish


Synne Sanden is a Norwegian, experimental and expressive popartist who writes about shameful subjects. The Norwegian Gaffa writes ”She has succeeded in finding her own voice and her own expression, musically as well as lyrically” She is inspired by Björk, Radiohead, Portishead and different songtraditions, but most of all by her own emotional world.
She is explorative and uncompromising in her songwriting, way of singing, production and her visual world. She is as explosive as she is sore, as playful as she is dark, and as rough as she is sensitive. She expresses a large scale of emotions through her songs and voice and she gives it all everytime she enters the stage.
Her fourth album IMITATION, released late 2019, is about wanting to be someone else and is a personal description of self-loathing, inferiority, envy and the wish for growth. The album is produced by Thomas Dybdahl, Bugge Wesseltoft, Lars Fremmerlid and herself. On the album and live she is letting out her own rich inner life through fascinating songs as dangerous and thrilling as fireworks, and she decides the rules.

PR : MODEM THE BAND

MODEM THE BAND – “CHAPTER I : INSPIRATION”
Release date: November 02nd, 2020
Label: Grey Dome
Hometown: Larissa, Greece
Genre: post-punk / coldwave

BandcampFacebookInstagramSoundcloudGrey Dome Records

Modem The Band are a post-punk coldwave project from Larissa, Greece, with minimal, schizoid, tuneful attitude.
They released on September 07th their first single “Equal”, to worlwide appreciation, followed by the minimal coldwave of the lockdown inspired “Incarceration”.
The album “Chapter I: Inspiration” is released on November 02nd, 2020, Vinyl 12″/Digital, through Grey Dome Records.
Modem The Band was created in 2018 in Larissa, Greece. It was the idea of Constantine which soon became a reality, consisting of a labyrinth of synth, dark and post punk sounds. Constantine (aka Zakk Minimal), a long time music producer, had the need to experiment both musically and expressively.
The initial line up of the band was Constantine, She (Vocals), Johny Teo (Guitars) and Theodore (bass) but after a year of live performances, musical quests and drastic changes the lineup shifted and so did the sonic direction of the band. Constantine and Theodore added Polydefkis in vocals for new album recordings, plus guest vocalists at times.
Modem The Band aim to share their musical aesthetics, always create fresh, modernized music breaking new grounds of sounds and at the same time creating new genres. “Chapter I: Inspiration”, our debut album is based on the music we loved and became a part of it, a blend of modular sounds and analog instrumentation
