A heartfelt surrender in Fergus’ stunning debut “You or Nothing”
It’s so much easier to focus on love’s positives: The warmth; the understanding; the camaraderie and understanding. Yet to know love is also to know pain, as anyone who’s loved can surely attest. It’s an overwhelming emotional endeavor that comes at a high price, as can be felt in FERGUS’ debut release, “You or Nothing.” Solemn, bittersweet and beautiful, “You or Nothing” captures the weight of love and the purity of devotion through serene sounds, haunting melodies and an incredibly humbling visual.
Atwood Magazine is proud to be premiering the music video for “You or Nothing,” FERGUS’ poignant debut single. Directed by videographer Jack Lightfoot and shot in one take at the stunning St Giles in the Fields church in London, “You or Nothing” presents complex emotions in a simple, radiant light. We meet FERGUS in a hauntingly dark place, but instead of volatility, we discover peace: A naked guitar lays a soft, mellow chord progression, upon which the singer/songwriter – originally from Cambridge, now based in London – delivers his heartfelt soliloquy.
“A vivid portrait aching with sincerity, the sort of exposed vulnerability that tugs at your heartstrings”
