SINGLE REVIEW: Fergus James – Mistakes

2019 has been a big year for Fergus James. From releasing his single ‘Back To Life’, to joining Meg Mac on her massive sold out 13 date tour to playing Splendour In The Grass and also showcasing to industry heavyweights at BIGSOUND, he’s ticked all boxes. But 2019 isn’t over for him just yet. The NSW singer-songwriter will be releasing his debut EP ‘All Of The Colours’ on November 1 before hitting the road for a highly anticipated headline tour which will see him getting up close and personal with his growing fanbase. 

To coincide with all of the exciting announcements, he’s dropped a new single which shows an increasing growth to his artistry. ‘Mistakes’ is a song that reflects on the mistakes we make while in love and the demise of a relationship that holds a lot of hope. “Oh love, the love that you know won’t ever be enough. I’m awake, I’m awake to myself now. From mistakes, oh mistakes that I made now”, he sings during the anthemic hook.  

Beginning the track in acoustic form with just a guitar and simple drums guiding the listener through the gentle verses before the chorus ignites a passion which could save the relationship. With an electrified and fulfilled sound, he elevates this emotive feeling to the next level and really takes control in making this song memorable and stand out. 

It’s very anthemic and reminds me a lot of Dean Lewis’ recent material with it’s commercial quality.
