After picking up some considerable heat with his band The Zombie Gospel down in the revived Asbury Park scene, songwriter Julian Fulton took some time to focus inward as real world developments led the group to separate as then constituted. This included Fulton playing out consistently as a solo performer for the first time which pushed him out of his comfort zone with the results on the songwriting side now beginning to bear tangible fruit.
Fulton has just released his first fully realized EP since that period, Battered Receptions, with standout single “Rosie’s Disposition” serving as an instantly loveable piece of indie-pop-rock. “True virtue resides within the lies you tell yourself to sleep at night,” Fulton sings as he implores a friend to get out of the suburbs.
The artist shares that the song, “is about feeling caged, trying to convince yourself you’re happy until finally running off in pursuit of something substantially more fulfilling.”
Rosie’s Disposition is out now via streaming and Bandcamp.
