Scottish composer, producer and performer Wuh Oh aka Peter Ferguson has revealed his latest single ‘Pretty Boy’ via his own imprint Soft Style.
The single showcases Wuh Oh’s talent for creating a hyper-modern clash of jubilant energy and off-kilter melodies. Meticulous with the visual direction for the Wuh Oh project, Ferguson conceputalised the video for ‘Pretty Boy’ in collaboration with artist Joe Crogan. A futuristic and cinematic introduction to Wuh Oh, the video occupies a quintessentially Sci-Fi world where Wuh Oh’s assembly is under way. As the track builds, Wuh Oh is built – the video follows the construction of an android avatar of the artist. Ferguson says ‘It was important to me that the audience feels they are part of the journey from the very beginning, watching the artist literally being brought to life’.
The mercurial performer has crammed a great deal of experience into his short musical evolution. Plucked from MySpace aged 15, his music was previewed along with a personal interview on Radio 1’s Annie Mac show and went on to release material on esteemed producer Ryan Hemsworth’s taste-making Canadian imprint ‘Secret Songs’.
Having previously performed on Vic Galloway’s BBC Introducing Sessions, TRNSMT and Electric Fields, Wuh Oh has recently completed a series of support shows with some significant peers – including electronica giants Orbital, New York slo-mo funk pioneer Com Truise and legendary turntablist and experimental hip-hop producer DJ Shadow.
Wuh Oh’s run of enviable support appearances have allowed him to develop his live show. Appearing onstage in otherworldly custom-made outfits, Wuh Oh crafts a surreal and inventive live experience that merges DJing, dexterous keyboard playing, self-styled interpretive dance and his sugar-rush pop sound into something rewarding and unique.
