is proud to host the exclusive world premiere of ‘Fools’ by Jonny Ong.

Singaporean singer-songwriter Jonny Ong has shared his brand-new music video for his latest single ‘Fools’ today (Thursday 4th June 2020).

As the follow-up to the track ‘Isolation’, Ong opts to delve deeper into the complicated world of a relationship gone wrong with the help of a purposeful walk which begins in a lush green woodland perhaps reflecting the beginning of a blossoming relationship. But as the song tells the tale, it becomes apparent that the relationship has died as he walks through the cemetery.

In this release, Jonny Ong’s vocals are reminiscent of Frankie Goes To Hollywood (The Power of Love) tinged with Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner (Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High?) As he contemplates his situation, we hear a very sexy but lonesome trumpet solo which begs the question ‘Should I stay for the sex or just leave this loveless relationship?’

The smorgasbord of musical influences are on full display including The Beatles ‘Revolver’ album reference in the line “Tomorrow never knows where we might go” which seems apt in this current global Covid-19 pandemic, the silvery Miles Davis jazz tone and the unique timbre of a handpan – an unusual, rare, lenticular-shaped instrument handcrafted from two bowls of steel sheet, glued together and tuned into a musical scale – which produces a magical, rich and layered sound.

So, the question now is ‘Will he stay or will he go’? You will have to watch to find out – you’d be a fool not to.
