Speaking about the track FERGUS said “Zelda Mae is about giving up on someone and, in doing so, finally breaking out from under their spell. Waking up from a trance and realising what you were putting yourself through, and everything that cost. Giving up can be the hardest thing to do and Zelda Mae is a release of months of hurt and sheer frustration; it’s triumphant in its sadness – a silver lining on an overcast day.”
Zelda Mae is another deeply personal track as FERGUS’ continues to soul search and purge himself of negativity through music. The artists talent for stirring emotive songwriting continues to evolve in this heart-rending song, a reflective brooding vocal, glides over melodic guitar rhythms and the rich timbre of deep cello, gathering pace and intensity as Fergus pleas for peace of mind. Produced by Jake Gosling (Lady Gaga, Ed Sheeran, The Libertines), Zelda Mae is drenched in alluring textures throughout.
The release of ‘Zelda Mae’, is the opening of a new chapter for FERGUS, we can expect to see more attitude and a bolder sound from his second EP. Previous EP, Purple Road garnered support from Radio X Communion, BBC Introducing, Soho Radio, Clash, Songwriting Magazine and Atwood, to name but a few.
FERGUS will release throughout 2019, performs a series of intimate live shows at Cocoa Vaults, Covent Garden from May 3rd and plays the Cornbury Music festival in July.
