The Sunday Sessions: Brooklyn's San Fermin Perform Single 'Emily' Live At Whelan's

We're big fans of San Fermin so when the New York band were in town recently, we had to get them in for a Sunday Session.

The eight-piece band released their self-titled debut album in 2013, fusing leader Ellis Ludwig-Leone's classical music background with contemporary pop sensibilities.

The line-up has evolved over the past number of years, with Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig of Lucius providing the female vocals on San Fermin before Rae Cassidy took over for the live tour.

Cassidy departed the band last year, with Charlene Kaye joining Allen Tate, Rebekah Durham, John Brandon, Stephen Chen, Tyler McDiarmid and Michael Hanfahead for follow-up Jackrabbit in April.

Ahead of their headline gig at Whelan's a few weeks ago, San Fermin took some time out to perform single Emily for the Sunday Sessions.
