Following the sold out release of their highly anticipated debut album ‘Problems & Pain’, Fulton Street has quickly established themselves as one of Australia’s most eminent soul acts. ‘Told How to Walk’ is the first release from songwriters Shannen Wick and James Stroud's record label, STOIC RECORDS!
'Told How To Walk' -
Written after witnessing blatant and casual racism aimed at a young indigenous man attending a music festival, ‘Told How to Walk’ recognises the plight of the traditional owners of this land and the discrimination they still face in modern Australia. The raw vocal sound and passionate horn hooks team up in sharp rebuke of Australia’s dark colonial history. The song also acts as a plea for greater respect, leading towards unity between indigenous and non-indigenous Australians moving forward. In an act of solidarity, Fulton Street will be donating $5 dollars of each physical copy of the single sold to 'The Healing Foundation.'
'Real Woman' -
With a heartfelt and dignified new sound, ‘Real Woman’ is a triumphant ode to the strength of women everywhere. Lovingly self-produced by the band, Fulton Street returns to a vintage sound with this classic soul ballad which simmers to an exultant climax at the end – “you don’t know, but you missed out”. ‘Real Woman’ explores the heartache of lost love before coming to the empowering conclusion that true worth can only be defined by one's self.
