Today, FERGUS releases ‘Sinking’ (rel 26.04.18) via Goldun Egg Records, the second track, taken from his debut EP due for release summer 2018. ‘Sinking’ follows the release of his debut single ‘You or Nothing’ in Oct ’17.
In keeping with FERGUS’ stunning debut, ‘You Or Nothing’, his follow-up single is a stark reminder of the artists undeniable talent for stirring, emotive songwriting. Produced by Jake Gosling ((Ed Sheeran, Lady Gaga, The Libertines) ‘Sinking’ takes us on a poignant emotional journey, pulling at our heart strings as we experience the highs and lows of a twisted love story.
Speaking about the song, FERGUS says: Sinking is about falling under someone’s spell. You don’t want to – you know better – but they’ve hooked you and left you marked, intoxicated. It’s about that feeling in your stomach. The feeling that twists and churns as it hurtles towards its conclusion. Like a storm they lift you up and they let you down; they tip you over, wreck you, and they swallow you whole – Inevitable as the sea.
FERGUS writes songs according to his mood, often choosing to embrace the melancholy, and through it finding a place of healing, beauty, and serenity. His formative years were spent singing and touring professionally with choirs, and playing ‘cello with orchestras. When this period of his life – a half, up to that point – came to an end he found himself burnt out, without a sense of identity. Seeking self-discovery, he rebelled. After a time adrift, his love of making music returned for good. Fergus turned his ability to blend into a strength, achieving harmony with his guitar and himself.
