Event Details

With the release of his critically acclaimed debut LP "Slow Gum" earlier in the year, Fraser A. Gorman established himself as one of the best and brightest new talents around. Having just finished his first headline US tour, Fraser is currently dominating at CMJ in New York and about to embark on a run of shows throughout UK/Europe. Now he announces a December tour and shares the new video to 'Never Gonna Hold You (Like I Do)', the fourth in his series of videos with director Sunny Leunig. As always with Gorman, his wry numerous poetry courses through the song's veins, culminating in a chorus that's as heart-tugging as it's uplifting.

In Fraser's own words: "My favourite song on the record. It's basically a story about me wandering home from Old Bar on Johnson street in Fitzroy (after a few sherberts) to Lambs on Brunswick street. In the shop, before I order a famous "tub" of lamb, I run into an ex of mine who has decided to move away from the geeky musician type and go for a more conventional "buff" young fellow.

I stand in the doorway making eye contact with the young lady whilst he finishes off the rest of her Kebab completely unaware of what is happening around him, strangling this little lamb and garlic sauce delicious treat. He's wearing a pastel V-neck and she knows she's cooked it. But that's life (He probably runs a concreting business so maybe it's me that has cooked it). A tub with garlic sauce later and I'm in a taxi home and winter rain splatters on the windscreen.
