Fergus' debut album, co-produced alongside Jake Gosling, is an extraordinary, emotional, cliché-free cycle of shapeshifting songs, which capture the highs and lows of a new relationship. During the pandemic he fled a locked down London and a week later, he fell in love. As a result, any recently written break up songs were binned, and a new set of love longs were penned. Fergus's poetic lyrics depict real life rather than fantasy. "I'm not naturally an upbeat person," admits Fergus. "I hadn't written a happy song in five years and even now, hearing myself sing about being in love is out of my comfort zone. I couldn't write a whole happy album." The complex nature of real relationships is mirrored in the songs' shifting structures and wide range of styles, from acoustic folk, indie and psychedelic rock to swathes of synths, a dip into jazz and even the spectre of samba. Striking instrumental interludes abound. "The huge instrumental sections were his idea (producer: Jake Gosling). Some of the songs needed that break because they can be intense. It was about zooming out to see the scope of the album and getting the pacing right."
