Recently announced as the support for American singer-songwriter, Martha Wainwright on all eleven shows of her Australian tour, we checked in with Sydney-based songwriter Fergus Brown to get the inside story on his wonderfully quirky and catchy pop song, "Nerds In Love."
It was was a fun song to write. Some songs can be tortuous but this was an imagined, tongue-in-cheek vignette of my life spent together with a certain girl I'd seen around. That's all it was. At least, until a friend of mine blurted to this girl that I'd written a song about her. And he gave her a copy. We're friends now. She's a very talented and successful visual artist. She was flattered. Recently, I heard that another person thinks it was written about them. I'm looking forward to that awkward conversation sometime in the future.
