Bored Nothing is the latest project from Melbourne singer/songwriter Fergus Miller. Miller has one of the most impressive Bandcamp pages I’ve ever seen, with eight separate releases since December 2010. All recorded on a four-track in his bedroom, his music has changed over this time, with psychadelia, folk, and punk all making appearances. He seems to have settled on his current lo-fi guise (for now), with Bored Nothing fitting in somewhere in between Death Cab and Elliott Smith.
His latest EP, Bored Nothing III, features six washed-out tracks, with “Popcorn” the standout. It’s slightly more upbeat than the others, using sharp percussion in contrasted tandem with his familiar reverbed vocals and guitar. It’s simple but heartfelt, without being too serious.
Nothing points to Miller slowing down, and he’s even branched out to live performances recently. Check out his impressive catalogue on Bandcamp, with much more music likely to follow.
