Sometimes Fletcher Gull just needs to let his mind wander.
A storyteller with an advanced love for nature, he enjoys long rambles - long enough to tire his legs, and open his mind.
There's a sense of wanderlust in his music, too, and this is emphasised on new single 'Deciduo'.
The song was sparked by a vision of a tree, one sighted by Australian born Fletcher on one of his wayfaring rambles in an adopted England.
A time when Autumn and Winter blur together, it's a softly supple offering, one that plays on differing moods and tones.
Taken from his forthcoming EP, 'Deciduo' is linked to some superb visuals, illustrated by Polish born, Britain based Karolina Glusiec.
The clip echoes Fletcher Gull's love for the outdoors, as he explains:
“Where I’m from there’s always this one day in the year, sometime in late May, when the seasons spill over into one another. In late afternoon the air is so dense with magic and fragrance, nudging around breezes that carry the breath of the Antarctic, muddled with salt and wilting jasmin.”
“For a moment Autumn and Winter are in the same room as each other, shaking hands against a sky of oil paints. I normally just walk around being grateful to be alive.”
“‘Deciduo’ is the story of how on one of those walks, I came across this tree on a hill, all of its leaves had almost fallen and it glowed in the way that things glow after rain. I ended up just sitting there in awe of the thing for what felt like hours. No one else would ever see this, so I had to try and preserve it and all I could do to come close was to write a song.”
