Fractures, the moniker of Melbourne native Mark Zito, is offering the Japanese Wallpaper remix of his new single, “Won’t Win,” for free download. The song is included on the self-titled “Fractures” EP, which is out now on iTunes.
The much-delayed release of the “Fractures” EP comes after a serious accident in late 2013 put a permanent question mark over the future of Zito’s musical career. In possibly the cruelest case of life imitating art, just days before his live debut in Australia, 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. The musical hiatus this foisted upon Zito put an indefinite full stop on his new project, just as Fractures was beginning to thrive; ‘It was a hard time for me’ says Zito, ‘everything was starting to click, and I was stuck inside’.
Zito persevered to remain productive & creative whilst essentially immobile, and “Fractures” bears the fruits of his writing whilst in recovery.
