The Fernweh release third single 'Next Time Around' taken from forthcoming debut

THE long term friendship bond that bides one of Liverpool's most hotly tipped acts The Fernweh runs deep into the very grains of their third single.

Taken from their highly anticipated debut album due for release on Friday, July 20, Next Time Around is a feisty but soft record with distinct sound straight out of the British 60s and 70s folk scene.

Available on June 14 courtesy of Skeleton Key, Next Time Around has nods to the likes of Donovan's The Hurdy Gurdy Man and Fairport Convention's staple album Liege and Lief, Next Time Around recorded in North Yorkshire, is a dreamy, psychedelic potion of songwriting beauty.

This wholesome contemplative sound is something that is also ever-present throughout their 43 minute and 58 second debut album.

The self-titled strong, perfectly concocted almanac of fables features favourites such as Is This Man Bothering You? and The Liar.

It's also beaming with celestial harmonies and raw guitar prangs mixed with hurly-burly bolts of marching beats from Phil Murphy and gentle keys provided by Austin Murphy.

Tracks such as Timepiece break up the album and offer escapism and is reminiscent of some theme tune from a fairy folklore cartoon from the 60s, this effortlessly aided by flautist Maja Agnevik.

Jamie Backhouse's acoustic guitars partner with vocalist Ned Crowther's accompanying bassline in tracks such as Little Monsters, providing a real mixed-bag of sound, creating something for everyone.

One thing that stands out is that the five-piece line-up translate straight from the studio to live performance and have become a firm favourite on their local gig circuit.

The Fernweh will be performing at Skeleton Coast Festival, Leasowe Castle on September 1.
