LISTEN: Gum – Growin’ Up
Current Tame Impala/Pond multi-instrumentalist whiz kid Jay Watson today released the second taste from his frothcoming debut album as Gum. ‘Growin’ Up’ is a perfect example of the depth and verstatility which Watson has shown across a number of projects, with the previously released ‘Delorean Highway’ (linked below) also creeping up a few of our end of year lists. It’s down-tempo shoegaze which isn’t afraid to flesh out a poignant mix of insecurities, melodies and dynamic percussion patiently over the course of four minutes at a time. According to Gum’s management, the forthcoming record is “mostly about falling in love and all of the things that he thinks are going to kill him.”
We’ll be waiting for this one!
