Filter Records: After signing with Filter in 2019, Feng Suave now release their first single on the label. ‘Toking, Dozing’ is the lead single of the upcoming EP ‘Warping Youth’, which is to be released on June 26th of this year.
‘Toking, Dozing’ was premiered by Complex: https://www.complex.com/music/2020/02/premiere-feng-suave-toking-dozing
The new single hints at an EP that is packed with a new found melancholy and poeticism. The band has clearly out grown their bedroom and used this EP as an opportunity to step into the studio for the first time to properly explore the next phase of their creative genesis. Feng Suave commented:
“We aimed at distancing ourselves from the contemporary ‘bedroom’ sound of our first releases and tried to stay true to the music we like, listen to and admire the most; more organic-sounding, classic songs. Thematically, the songs are about coming of age and the directionless wandering through adolescence that comes with it.”

About Feng Suave:
Feng Suave are an Alternative/Soul duo from Amsterdam, Netherlands. Mixing warm psych-pop with RnB grooves, band members Daniël Schoemaker and Daniël de Jong create carefully crafted tunes. In 2017 they released their bedroom-produced self- titled first EP.
Sonically, the duo emit a strong sense of soul. Influenced by 70s greats like Bill Withers and The Beatles, as well as current favourites Foxygen, Homeshake and Tame Impala – Feng Suave marry together sounds from different decades. The band has fans from all regions of the planet, as their sound might be equally at home in the local music scenes of Brooklyn, Los Angeles or Sydney.
Earlier releases saw the band receive the stamp of approval from Iggy Pop on his BBC 6 music show, whilst touring in support of Khruanbing, playing festivals such as Best Kept Secret, North Sea Jazz and being nominated for the coveted Anchor Award as a top act on 2019’s Reeperbahn Festival.
Amongst the announcement of a round of live shows (and the promise of more to come) in Mexico, Germany, The Netherlands, UK, Spain and Belgium – the band have set June 26th 2020 as the release date for their new EP.
