Melbourne multi-instrumentalist, singer-producer, Fractures has announced his debut headline show in London for Thursday October 30, at The Seabright Arms.
Hosted by Communion Presents, this show sees Fractures- aka Melbourne native Mark Zito- travel to the UK following the release of his debut self-titled EP in July and a string of sold-out shows in his home country.
Pairing infectious pop hooks with haunting narrative, Fractures, AKA Mark Zito, has won fans and praise from his peers including Gotye and Chet Faker for his dark, alluring sound.
Previous singles ‘Twisted’ and ‘Cadence’-promptly went top 3 on Hype Machine, whilst The Guardian tipped follow-up ‘Cadence’ as ‘a down-tempo electro burner bringing to mind Jamie Woon and James Blake’. The raft of interest in Fractures’ output has resonated far beyond the approval of critics and fellow musicians, with now more than a million plays on Soundcloud.
In possibly the cruelest case of life imitating art, just days before his live debut in mid 2013, the producer and multi-instrumentalist suffered a near-fatal fall, leaving him with a fractured neck & confined to an orthotic halo for a recovery period of 3 months.
Happily, Zito’s complete recovery now brings him to London, which will see Zito (replete with 5 piece band) lifting the new EP up & out of the studio, translating his crisp productions with the luxurious depth and resonance so evident across Fractures.
“He plays like a slightly slicker James Blake or How to Dress Well — an R&Bist with
an alternative approach, and an ear for what works”
“Cadence achieves its emotional peaks with subtle but stunning clarity”
“If you’re looking to be moved, look no further”
“Fractures is an artist that possesses enviable musical dexterity”
