Ferals are connected to the Belfast music community but their metaphysical home is the north coast, a wind-lashed location for giant riffs, post-rock, DIY music and admirable self-reliance. That’s where Shane and Sam once featured in the band The Bayonettes and where Ferals made their first, impressive statements. “We used to say that we took major inspiration from the beach,” says Shane. “It’s part of the north coast sound. There’s four of five beaches down there there’s sand dunes, forest and everything. There's so much natural beauty, it's mad."
