Post-punk or art-rock? Either way whichever you decide you’re still going to get a Gustaf, the New York quintet surfaced just a year ago and began performing, garnering attention from artists like Beck while touring with like-minded acts like James Chance, Omni, Tropical Fuck Storm, Dehd and Bodega.
The group recently released its first single “Mine,” an off-kiltered yet catchy track’s bound to spark attention quickly. The band has shared the video for its first single here.
Vocalist Lydia Gammill explains: “This song is about having a false sense of entitlement. Someone who feels attacked or like they’re being pushed out of their own world and not getting the credit they deserve. Someone with a delusional sense of self whose anger and frustration is humorous like the superintendent in a college frat movie. The opening lines make it seem like the narrator is being criticized by someone else and their retaliation is like “you’ve got to be kidding me, you can’t say that about me! I invented water you punk!” …. sort of.”
