On July 4th, Fractures released a new self-titled EP. Sign of a triumphant return, lead track ‘Won’t Win’ from the Fractures EP has gone top 10 on Hype Machine and the video is available to watch at SPIN. The raft of interest in Fractures’ (aka Melbourne resident Mark Zito) output has resonated far beyond the approval of critics. His previous releases have drawn praise from the likes of Gotye and Chet Faker and are in excess of half a million plays on Soundcloud. The much-delayed release of new material comes after a serious accident in late 2013, which in possibly the cruellest case of life imitating art, the producer and multi-instrumentalist suffered a near-fatal fall, leaving him with a fractured neck & confined to an orthotic halo for a recovery period of 3 months. Incredibly, Zito persevered to remain productive & creative whilst essentially immobile, and happily, Zito’s complete recovery from his injuries now signals a soon-to-be-announced run of live shows from Fractures through 2014, which will see Zito (replete with 5 piece band) lifting the new EP up & out of the studio, translating his crisp productions with the luxurious depth and resonance so evident across Fractures.
