GUM Announces New Album, Shares Two Songs "Underdog" & "S.I.A."

Australian psych-pop musician Jay Watson (member of Tame Impala and Pond) side-project GUM has announced the release of his new studio album titled 'Underdog'.

The follow-up to 2016's 'Flash in the Pan', will be out on  April 6 via Spinning Top Records. Pre-order your copy here.

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.“
