FM Premiere: FGN’s PANDEMIC

"It’s about the realisation that social media massively heightens the bullshit and often fake depictions of perfection in different areas of our lives, and the impacts that this can leave. I wanted to capture the ultimatums, the highs, the lows and the maybes of time spent in a relationship during the pandemic.”

London R&B singer-songwriter FGN drops his slow-burn debut release Pandemic – the first track from his forthcoming debut mixtape Blood Sweat & Tiers

It’s FGN’s vocals that immediately hit, a blend of melody and raspiness over a lilting instrumental. The video follows a young, alienated couple across a deserted London as they find a distraction from the problems of the world in each other. The taut visuals do a good job in depicting how unusual and introspective life and relationships have become during these recent times. Against the backdrop of FGN’s yearning vocals, it makes for a notable introduction for the emerging artist. 

Speaking on the track, FGN states: “It’s about the realization that social media massively heightens the bullshit and often fake depictions of perfection in different areas of our lives, and the impacts that this can leave. I wanted to capture the ultimatums, the highs, the lows, and the maybes of time spent in a relationship during the pandemic.”
