Sydney finally experienced an earful of Melbourne musician Fractures last week at his sold out show in Newtown. He has just released his much anticipated debut LP Still Here and is taking his unique brand of melancholy electro pop on a brief tour around the country, wrapping up in Melbourne this Friday night. The guy broods over themes of conflict and heartbreak in his songwriting but his on-stage banter is a different story. Harnessing that combination of powerful guitar driven pop, where the live band element certainly kicks in, and his almost-stand-up-routine between songs, Fractures had the crowd coasting along, thoroughly enjoying every minute.
