Ferris & Sylvester release live version of 'Knock You Down'

Ferris & Sylvester have released a live version of their recent single Knock You Down, which got the stripped back treatment at Real World Studios. You can watch the video below.
Knock You Down features on ‘I Should Be On a Train’, which is the latest EP released by the duo – made up of Issy Ferris and Archie Sylvester – but the pair have opted to give it a slightly different twist.
Speaking to EARMILK about the new version, the pair stated that they had always wanted to record something at Real World Studios before opening up on how it came to fruition in this format.
“We’d always wanted to record something at Real World,” the duo explained. “We were in the studio’s smaller live room called The Wood Room and everything looked and sounded warm, lively and exciting. It felt really interesting in this new set up, making it perhaps more melancholy and thoughtful.
“We waited until it got dark, cleared the room of everything but this amazing grand piano and just sang it together. In the spirit of a live session, we wanted it to be totally transparent, so we shot it with one camera angle.
“There isn’t anything to hide behind in that environment, we just had to trust ourselves in the moment. We’d never done a live session on piano before, so it felt nerve-racking and exciting when the engineer hit record. It certainly had a magic to it and we hope that translates in the video.”
‘I Should Be On a Train’ was released by Ferris & Sylvester on October 2 and can be listened to here.
