The new track from the former Let’s Wrestle frontman, Wesley Gonzalez, is an utterly charming and uplifting song about laziness and love. ‘Exhibition Song’ is a taster of the upcoming album from the now solo artist which is wonderfully titled Excellent Musician.
Out on Moshi Moshi Records on June 30th the album, judging by this release, will be a showcase of what Gonzalez can do. His ear for a tune and undeniable penchant for melody mean that this LP has the potential to be one of the dark horse successes of the year. It feels influenced by everything, using The Beatles as a marker it channels indie pop through everything that is holy.
When speaking about ‘Exhibition Song’ Gonzalez speaks of its endearing inception ”My girlfriend and I were planning on going to see the Sarah Lucas exhibition at Whitechapel Gallery a few years ago, it was the last weekend it was on and I remember us both being too lazy to go, but also complaining that we weren’t going. I think the song is about security in a relationship, that you can be okay with someone’s presence with whatever you are doing. I’m sure the exhibition was okay, I’ve seen a lot of Sarah Lucas stuff before anyways, so fuck it, I got a song out of it!”
