Fractures, aka Melbourne multi-instrumentalist Mark Zito, recently swung by the Rolling Stone Australia office to perform a raw reinterpretation of his new track "Lowcast".
While the recorded version of the song escapes the soulful minimalism of its start for a spurting, natural momentum, here Zito and band rein it back in, trapping the layered harmonies within a contrasting and far more frantic multi-guitar loop. A deconstructed, fresh perspective of a song that primarily focuses on building from a slither of optimism.
"['Lowcast'] is about someone who has dug themselves into a hole and the process of getting themselves out. Mostly trying to overcome the negativity surrounding them in order to rebuild and refresh," Zito recently told Music Feeds.
The track features on Fractures full-length debut, Still Here, released February 10th. To coincide, he will play a short run of East Coast dates, starting this week.
