A mellow vibe accented by lush guitar chords with dreamy synths and drums. This is what Gus Dapperton paints for us on the most recent single from his Yellow and Such EP. He begins with a soothing tone, and the bridge has calm and melodic backing vocals, but when the hook starts the synths come in hard and his voice becomes so sweetly raspy.
Dapperton vividly explains how he is 'whole,' meaning there’s no need to seek satisfaction in external things like possessions, which is explained in this interview with Vice:
The song describes two lost souls. They both share a complementary mindset when it comes to opulence, popularity, materialism, and love. Meaning that they don't care much for wealth and image.
With a whole EP that screams surrealism, laced with ethereal instrumentals and poignant lyrics, Gus Dapperton is the new artist that should definitely be on your radar.
Also, the music video is pretty cool.
