Meet Fletcher Gull. The 21 year old songwriter originally from Wollongong has been dabbling in the realm of alternative pop for a few years now and creates original music that shows his love for colourful and endlessly vibrant pop music.
With his new single “Light Up”, Gull gets personal in penning a song that puts family in focus. Inspired by his younger sister, “Light Up” deals with innocence, the loss of it, and the role mental anxiety can play.
For many young people, mental health problems prove to be a constant factor in how each day is established and carried through. It’s a prevalent issue in today’s society and thankfully, more people are feeling comfortable in speaking about it.
“If the song has a message,” he’s said. “It’s probably that torture of losing oneself in a haze of mental anxiety can be so innocently beautiful and taking a step back to look at it might change everything”.
The music video is glowing and represents the hopeful nature that permeates the music itself. Check it out below!
