Taken from his latest album, Elysium, Fall Apart is the sound of Julian Shah-Taylor doing what he does best—creating a new musical future for discerning musical aficionados to bathe in. It is the sound of his oft-Bowie-esque inclinations being channelled through slightly melancholic yet urgent and infectious synth-driven music turned into poised and pathos propelled pop.
