FERGUS Unveils Video For ‘You Or Nothing’

FERGUS Unveils Video For ‘You Or Nothing’
London based singer songwriter, FERGUS, has unveiled the official music video for his debut single You Or Nothing, out today via Goldun Egg Records. Directed by videographer Jack Lightfoot and shot in one take at the stunning St Giles in the Fields, London.  Watch it below!



Wow guys! This is a gem! I love how the song is stripped back to gentle plucked guitars and his unique tender vocals. It has a melancholic feel to it that drew me in from the very first listen! A hauntingly beautiful and heartbreaking song, You Or Nothing is the first track taken from FERGUS’ debut EP due for release early this year.

Speaking about the video, FERGUS said:
We wanted to create something simple and beautiful to complement not only the song itself, but also the slightly, corrupted devoutness present throughout 'You or Nothing'. We got really lucky with St Giles-in-the-fields; and to film in such a stunning church, in the sort of setting I spent so much of my childhood, felt surreal and fittingly full circle. The way the camera sweeps around me reminds me of a spinning ballerina in a music box, put on display for all to see - an image I think perfectly embodies the bittersweet nature of the track.
About the song FERGUS said:
’You or Nothing’ is more of a snapshot than a story. It captures an unfamiliar feeling caught between complex emotions. I like the combination of the simple, clear sounds and the maybe-dark-maybe-sweet lyrics. There’s a holiness to it you can hold up and examine in the light, but you might not like what you find.
FERGUS’ 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. He turned his ability to blend into strength, achieving harmony with his guitar and himself. FERGUS writes songs according to his mood, often choosing to embrace the melancholy and, through it, finding a place of healing, beauty, and serenity.
