Described as “an endlessly flexible musical polymath,” GUM’s ability to traverse multiple genres is evident in his latest sonic offerings. Mixed and recorded himself, with additional drums done at Kevin Parker’s home studio, GUM describes The Underdog themes as “evoking that sensation of triumph and that weird parallel universe feeling you get when the person that’s not supposed to win, does.“
The last song made for the new record, “S.I.A” was depicted as “a Russian advert for shaving razors from the year 2080” by artist Bjenny Montero. GUM based the track’s beginnings on an initial rhythm saying, “I liked the idea of it being really organic electronic music, kind of groovy but also really cold and mechanical sounding.“
