Noteworthy electronic producer Jerry Folk will be releasing his latest single, ‘Ferris Wheel’ with his side project FENGSEL featuring singer Alva Ravn on the 11th of June via Folkestad Recordings. The single follows the release of ‘Everything’, ‘On My Way ft. Bearson’ and ‘Dotted Red’ which all mark a new direction for Jerry Folk’s sound and precede the release of his first full-length later this year. Jerry Folk has remixed the likes of Billie Eilish, Charlie Puth and Oh Wonder and produced for artists like Alina Baraz, Axwell Ingrosso and Lemaitre to name but a few. Having toured the US multiple times, Jerry Folk has opened for Odesza, played at Coachella and the Mixmag lab twice and earned over 222 million plays across streaming platforms.
Oslo born and based, Jerry Folk has always been a traveller at heart, having lived in Islington, London as a baby for 6 months and frequently returning to visit friends and family. For nearly three years, the artist also found himself living in LA. The producer has received support from publications such as Clash Magazine, Complex, Highsnobiety, Dancing Astronaut, Ones To Watch, Your EDM, This Song Is Sick, Run The Trap and Magnetic Magazin, to name a few.
As he embarks on his new journey, Jerry Folk finds inspiration in artists from the Soulection roster, Toro Y Moi, James Blake, Majid Jordan and Flume. ‘Ferris Wheel’ calls to mind a delicate combination of London Grammar, Billie Eilish and Halsey. Alva Ravn is an Oslo-born singer, writer and producer based in Copenhagen whose dream-pop, soul-pop and R&B sensibilities quickly set her apart from other industry veterans.
Jerry Folk explores the complex nature of childhood, loss and coming to terms with the inevitable in his latest single. ‘Ferris Wheel’ explores the highs, lows and endless intricacies that life has to offer – encasing each emotion in the gentle voice of Alva Ravn and bundling the creation together in caressing electronic tones. Encompassing contemplation, reflection and the gentle feeling of running your fingers through a loved ones hair, the timeless untouched simplicity found within Jerry Folk’s latest single reveals an intimate tone from the producer that has been unseen before now.
The musician gives us a breakdown of his latest release: “Alva is a friend I met in high school and we have been writing a lot of music lately. Ferris Wheel is probably my favorite so far we’ve done together.”
