  • Young People/Problems & Pain - 7" Vinyl Single
    Record/Vinyl

    Fulton Street are a seven-piece soul band that in a short amount of time have made a huge impact on Melbourne’s rich music scene. Led by the commanding vocalist, Shannen and featuring a rock solid rhythm section and dynamic horn section, Fulton Street combine the classic elements of soul and R&B with a vibrant energy to create an irresistible sound.


    Fulton Street’s new material is mixed, produced and mastered by drummer/producer Ivan 'Choi' Khatchoyan. Ivan has been prominent in Melbourne’s soul music community for years now, having worked with well-known local artists including Vida-Sunshyne, Candice Monique. Most notably, Ivan is part of Cookin' On 3 Burners, the Australian trio who are riding high with one of 2016’s biggest hits, 'This Girl' (Kungs vs Cookin' On 3 Burners).


    ‘Young People' -
    Fulton’s Street’s powerful debut single, 'Young People,' is a high energy, catchy anthem with an addictive hook. Based on Shannen's struggle to get a foot into the workforce post-university, this gritty track is a slap in the face for society. As she channels her frustrations, Shannen's vocals, along with that of a soulful choir, soar over punchy horn lines to deliver a powerful message.


    ‘Problems & Pain' -
    'Problems & Pain', the B side to ‘Young People,’ stays in the same vein with disappointment at the current state of the world. Driven by a killer guitar line and dynamic horns, this predominantly instrumental track keeps its groove tight before taking the message home with a commanding call to action from the lead singer.

lyrics

[Verse]
For seventeen years, I worked hard
I put my faith in a system that just don’t work
Young people, they say, you gotta get experience
But how you gonna get experience when they won’t even look your way?

[Chorus]
Wish that I could stick it to the man
Go against any sort of plan now
But if I did, I wouldn’t stand a chance
Living all alone, I ain’t got no one
Don’t tell me I’m not trying
He knows how hard I’m trying
What more can I do…
When I got nothing on my side?

[Verse]
100, 205 attempts between my sister and I
Every time it’s the same old:
We’ll get back to your shortly…
We never heard back
The fear is overwhelming sometimes
Try to keep it from messing with my mind
I’m thinking about all the things I wanna do
And I’m wondering if I’m ever gonna see them through

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
Degrees don’t mean nothing
Hit hard with debts we can’t pay
I don’t know where I’m going
And it scares me to death
[What we gonna do bout the young people?
What we gonna change for the young people?
Who’s going to stand up for the young people?] X3

[Chorus]

[Outro]
[What we gonna do bout the young people?
What we gonna change for the young people?
Who’s going to stand up for the young people?] X6
