Now Watching: GUM – 'Out In The World'

Friday, March 13, 2020

GUM aka Jay Watson will leave you spellbound with his exquisite new single 'Out In The World'. Released via Spinning Top Records, the track was also released on 7" vinyl alongside a cover of Ballroom's 'It's A Sad World'.

'Out In The World' sees Watson muse about feelings of isolation. He said, "'Out In the World' is about wanting to give up and never talk to anyone ever again after something goes wrong. Some people have that feeling all the time - it’s crippling and isolating." Also adding, "It sounds like light coming through half-shut blinds. It’s not possible for all, but for me, I force myself to go out again, or get on stage, or do whatever it is I have to do to keep moving on."

Appearing like a daydream, the single's accompanying video features enchanting scenes of Watson spending time alone. The video was directed by Canadian filmmaker Laura-Lynn Patrick.
