Following on from the success of their last single “The Crystal Palace”, The Fullers bring us a new release in the form of “Unreal City”, a track that fuses baroque pop with a sample from a Beethoven concerto to great effect.
“Unreal City” tells the story how the internet has ensured that culture increasingly stems from the online world rather than the local, physical one we live in. The song is a sad reflection on the struggle of many UK towns and cities and feels very current at this very moment in time.
Building to a climax from an ABC structure, the song gradually gains momentum taking the listener on a journey with the track. With a cleverly sampled arpeggiated sequence, The Fullers sample a Beethoven concerto to give the track another dimension whilst delicate acoustic guitar blends with subtle electric guitar making the song an easy listen.
The four-piece formed in South London in 2018 and take inspiration from The Smiths and Arctic Monkeys whilst combining a modern indie sound with folk melodies. 'Unreal City' is the next step for The Fullers who are slowly growing a steady catalogue of great indie-folk songs.
'Unreal City' is out now on all major streaming services.
