Fuji Gateway – “Tuesdays, Am I Right?”


A hypnotic slice of dreamy psychedelia from Fuji Gateway, “Tuesdays, Am I Right?” leaves a lasting impression with its calming guitar strums, hazy synth pads, and understated vocal immersion. Based in Asheville, North Carolina, the project of Steven Applegate fully showcases its atmospheric engrossment here, building from serene envelopment into delectably twangy guitar additions throughout the final minute.

“The lyrics are about the emotional ups and downs of being human and my past relationships using drugs and alcohol to manage these emotions,” Applegate explains. “Tuesdays, Am I Right?” has us firmly anticipating whatever’s next from Fuji Gateway.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of December 2023’ Spotify playlist.
