Incoming, first single from my forthcoming wonky electro synthypop EP of the same name is out 29th November. Links coming soon. The 4 track EP is out Monday 13th December on digital download and cassette.
Gus is a real talent, his music comes from eclectic influences and yet buzzes with originality. He is highly collaborative and wholly inventive making him one of the best composers I have had the pleasure to have worked with.
- Matt Lipsey (Director)
Gus came highly recommended to me, and, having now heard what he is capable of, I would wholeheartedly recommend him as composer of choice to others. He has a finely-tuned understanding of what’s needed, and an incredible capacity to tackle an array of styles. Gus is a real joy to work with.
- Sam Dunn (Head of Video Publishing, BFI)
I absolutely love this band
