Watch: Gustaf Release New Single/Video "Mine"

Brooklyn-based art-punk/post-punk quintet Gustaf have released their new single "Mine", and its accompanied video.

The 7" single b/w Design  will be out on December 4th via Royal Mountain Records (US Girls, METZ, Mac DeMarco, Wild Pink), it was produced by Chris Coady (Beach House, Future Islands, TV On The Radio), and it’s a fantastically off-kilter post-punk track that really tows that line of art-rock. Get it here.

UPDATE:12/10/2020: "Mine" is our new Single of the Week!

Vocalist Lydia Gammill explains: "This song is about having a false sense of entitlement. Someone who feels attacked or like they’re being pushed out of their own world and not getting the credit they deserve. Someone with a delusional sense of self whose anger and frustration is humorous like the superintendent in a college frat movie. The opening lines make it seem like the narrator is being criticizing by someone else and they’re retaliation is like "you’ve got to be kidding me, you can’t say that about me! I invented water you punk!" …. sort of. "
