Wesley Gonzalez shares new video for ‘I Am A Telescope’

Wesley Gonzalez has shared the new video for single ‘I Am A Telescope’, the latest track from Excellent Musician, Gonzalez’s debut solo album out 30th June 2017 on Moshi Moshi Records.

“This new video for ‘I Am A Telescope’ was filmed at 8am on a bleak day in Brockley at the Betting shop, one of the oldest bookies in the area, there were still built in ashtrays on the tables and fag burns in the seats,” Gonzalez said.

“Betting shops are interesting places, it’s like there isn’t an outside world when you are in there. The shoot ended with a Rasta bloke asking to buy my Synthesizer for £20 I declined the offer but can’t blame a dude for trying, maybe I would’ve accepted the offer if he hadn’t called it a piano? If I look ill or in a bad way for any reason let it be known that it’s because I did my own makeup.

“’I Am A Telescope’ is one of the few love songs on the album, which was written within the first few months of meeting my girlfriend. I met her when I was taking a lot of drugs and working a shitty job, aimlessly, and I felt uplifted but still felt I had a long way to go personally. It’s half me just explaining what a mess my life is and half telling my girlfriend I love her.”
