With deliberate use of a saxophone in place of a vocalist, Feralcat and the Wild treads the path of an instrumentalist who strays from pre-existing musical constructs. Our music uses sweeping lyrical melodies over heavy guitar-driven rhythms to create a sound that can be both heard and felt deeply. Influences like Underoath and Circa Survive are as treasured as those of Esperanza Spalding and Robert Glasper. Their songs break barriers and melt faces, stimulating the mind with improvised saxophone music that simultaneously rocks the listener onto their dancing feet. With the band’s debut self-titled EP (2019), they made a musical style that wouldn’t be put in a box. It is chaotic and daring, and yet fully-realized; and most of all, its punk as can be.
