Ba Da Bing!
Like any scientist would before coming to a conclusion, Fusilier’s new EP, Treason, asks only questions without ever making a statement. Treason locates its universe right after the Big Bang, where fragments join and create something entirely new. This liminal space in between is what occupies the mind of Atlanta-raised, Brooklyn-based multi-instrumentalist Blake Fusilier. Themes of violence, youth, alienation, and belonging undergird this collection, while its songs serve as individual love letters to the artists Fuslier was most inspired by, like Nine Inch Nails, Bill Withers, and Fela Kuti. It fits in today somewhere between TV On The Radio, Mitski, and Radiohead with its precise yet opaque lyrics, indie-rock guitar riffs, classical motifs and sometimes-soaring, sometimes-crooning melodies.
