With an introduction suffused with melancholy, ‘If It’s Easier’ steadily evolves with a positive energy delivered via gently strummed guitar chords and rolling drum rhythms. Fergus’ mesmerizing vocals tell a relatable poignant tale that unravels to the human instinct to protect themselves.
FERGUS said about the single “The title-birthing track of the album. This was a song I had mapped out on guitar for ages and ages, just waiting for the verses to materialise. Life and love can beat us down, and make us want to close up and sort of “opt out” to feel safer. Is it easier?
Probably. But will that lead to fulfilment…? So it goes from being very risk-adverse, to having doubts, then to eventually surrendering utterly – at the mercy of love.”
