Excellent Musician

Taking influence from the foot stomping soul of early Stax records, Yellow Magic Orchestra’s warbling synthesisers and classic English pop songwriting akin to XTC, the album’s latest offering ‘Exhibition Song’ is both indulgent and soulful. It details days derailed, stalled by trivialities and an overriding urgency to stay home with the person you love – “a hand that’s held with no thought at all, it takes so long just to get one”. Exhibition Song’s decisive and inventive arrangement is a testament to Gonzalez’s skills as a songwriter.

‘Exhibition Song’ follows the rousing AA side “Come Through and See Me / I Spoke to Euan”, released last year during a summer which also saw Gonzalez perform a series of animated and theatrical live shows, including sets at Glastonbury, Green Man, The Great Escape, Visions, Port Eliot, and Festival No.6.

Gonzalez
made a name for himself at an early age as the petulant frontman and creative force behind guitar-shredding pop-punk band Let’s Wrestle. The band, formed in 2005 when Gonzalez was only 15, was lauded for their no-fi DIY sound. In 2015, after ten years and three records together, culminating in a chaotic sold-out final show at The 100 Club, as reported by The Guardian, the group disbanded and Gonzalez set his sights on an entirely different approach to songwriting – “I wanted to completely indulge myself with the experimentation that I had previously kept to my bedroom demos.”
