Now Playing: GUM – 'The Blue Marble'

Sunday, March 11, 2018

GUM’s latest single 'The Blue Marble' brings us back to the warm feeling of nostalgia from his first album Delorean Highway, while also providing us with new tasty flavours — thanks to the various samples throughout the chorus reminiscent of artists such as AIR and Gotye.

It’s a catchy little tune full of lovely lush synthesisers, gritty lo-fi drums and GUM’s classic, dreamy guitars that accompany his sweet vocal harmonies. The third single release from his upcoming album The Underdog, this song is the epitome of a tasty jam dipped in various amounts of phaser that allows you to drift away on GUM’s psychedelic cloud, injecting a fresh burst of joy and harmony straight to the pleasure centres of your brain.

If there is one thing this writer wants for his birthday, it’s more dreamy psychedelic pop from our boy GUM and his lush, wondrous mind.
