Gustaf: Mine

Brooklyn art punks Gustaf sign with Royal Mountain Records (US Girls, Wolf Parade, Pottery), and unveil the debut single, Mine, alongside a mad accompanying visual. Since their beginnings in 2018 Gustaf have shared stages with top acts such as Beck, as well as underground veteran James Chance and consistently upcoming bands like Omni, Tropical Fuck Storm, Dehd and Bodega.

Mine is a nervy post punk piece which strongly suggests the band's New York origin, and comes akin to the no wave and dance punk bizarreness of acts like ESG and Bush Tetras. The single was produced by Chris Coady (Beach House, Future Islands, TV On The Radio), together with more of Gustaf's work which is expected to be released in the near future.

"This song is about having a false sense of entitlement," vocalist Lydia Gammill explains. "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 criticizing by someone else and they’re retaliation is like 'you’ve got to be kidding me, you can’t say that about me! I invented water you punk!' …. sort of. "
