NYC Art Punks Gustaf Sign to Royal Mountain, Share Debut Video
Meet the group that Beck calls "one of my favourite bands"
Published Oct 09, 2020New York art punks Gustaf have just signed with Toronto label Royal Mountain Records, and they've shared a video for debut single "Mine."
The track is a spiky, bass-driven post-post tune full of angular riffs and brash sing-speak vocals. An announcement from the group calls "Mine" a "song about the overly entitled and underwhelmed."
The video, directed by Joey Chriqui, is similarly in-your-face — often literally — as vocalist Lydia Gammill menacingly roams the streets and rounds up the other band members for a glittery performance in an empty club. It's part origin story, part abduction, and features lots of lipstick over-application.
Check it out below. "Mine" will be released on red 7-inch vinyl on December 4, and is available to pre-order now from Royal Mountain. In an Instagram story, Beck shared the video and called Gustaf "one of my favourite bands."
