Here at Clunk HQ we’ve been keeping a beady eye on Gustaf since hearing the song ‘Mine’ last year. There’s great news of a forthcoming debut album. For starters it has a great title…’Audio Drag for Ego Slobs’. It’s out on October 1st. There is a lead single and video that you can give a listen and a watch below. It’s called ‘Book’ and we love it at Clunk HQ. It’s got a bass line that drives the whole thing forward with a slightly shouty delivery, in a Bodega kind of way (another band that we love at Clunk HQ). This is what the band have to say about ‘Book’.
“‘Book’ is a song about the fallacy and fight of getting ahead vs being a head. It is seeking validation in the wrong places and from the wrong people. The hook, “I got ahead, I got a head” is a fun little taunt that we find either being thrown in our face or coming out our mouth. Everyone gets their moment up on the pedestal and everyone gets their turn falling off of it. Whether it’s up or down, ‘Book’ is about accepting whatever level you’re on.“
So check out Gustaf. You can get to know them a little at the link below but first give them a listen!
