This week’s A&A Track of the Week is ‘Transgressive Soliloquy’ from Australian Fletcher Gull.
Think quirky indie akin to Modest Mouse and Passion Pit.
The track sees him vent frustration towards 21st Century living – with the symbolic video acting as a metaphor conveying the remorseless effects of societal expectations.
Fletcher has a fascination for finding answers to life’s questions, which started from delving into religious texts and ancient tomes out of curiosity – seamlessly tying in with his academic career as a physicist. As someone who has fought long term anxiety too, this reached a pinnacle point when he accidentally overdosed, changing his life and worldview, and inspiring the inception of his forthcoming EP due later this Spring.
Besides being a multi-instrumentalist and physicist he’s a poet and literature fanatic – citing Edgar Allan Poe and Tolkien as favourites, and finding his name between the covers of his favourite book, Richard Bach’s novella “Jonathan Livingston Seagull”.
