Fletcher Gull – City Is Busy

It’s been 13 years since Melbourne’s Fletcher Gull started making music at the age of 8. In the meantime, he developed into a promising singer-songwriter. I’m not the only one who noticed that, obviously. The credits of his new single City Is Busy read like a β€˜who is who’ of Australian pop music. It was produced by Japanese Wallpaper (Mallrat, Wafia) and Dave Hammer (Lime Cordiale, Genesis Owusu), and mixed by Francois Tetaz (Gotye).

City Is Busy was crafted in isolation but destined for the stage. It’s a sparkling song with β€˜80s New Romantic synths, a pulsating bass and big drums. Gull wrote the track about an encounter in the street: β€œShe talked to me for a while, telling me about how her life used to be great in the β€˜80s but now the city’s busy, cold and lonely”, he recounts. β€œShe said she used to have fun with her friends and motorbike around Australia, but now she can’t even sit on the street without getting fined or arrested. She was tired of everything, old with nothing to look forward to, just waiting to be crucified.”
