Gustaf Share Best Behavior Single
I’m not entirely sure I’m able to describe to you my infatuation with Gustaf. Early on, with their debut 7″, it was all about those angular riffs and the band lobbing up these huge choruses that would crash down emphatically and sweep you away. But, on this new single, you get the band relying almost solely on the rhythm section; it’s the propulsive element here…well, unless you just look to singer Lydia Gammill. All the band’s videos portray Lydia with this natural tenacity, which perhaps could be construed as a certain wildness, but it’s harnessed here, almost tethered to the lonely guitar notes. Even still, you can see the rhythm of the band taking hold, pushing Gammill and company to the brink. Look for their Audio Drag for Ego Slobs on October 1st via Royal Mountain Records.
