While browsing Youtube and listening to music, I came across a very new artist on. His name is Gus Dapperton. Somewhere between the age of 17-21 he’s a young man that I think lives in Europe, that produces his own music. His songs often take on a nostalgic 80’s feel/twist to it, that of which really caught my attention. His songs revolve around his own individual style with an 80’s and rock theme. It’s pretty hard to describe what his music is like as it is a mix of everything, but it’s very enjoyable to listen to.

He writes his songs in a way that every song has its own meaning to him yet everyone else can take the song and attribute their own meaning. He makes his songs where you have to use your own discretion to decide on what he song is about. The songs often revolve around a theme of love and teenage problems and they can range anywhere from slow and sad to upbeat. Another quality about his music are the music videos. The images and videos are put together very well. For having little to no budget, all the videos look very high quality and could be comparative to mainstream artists. Even though Gus is just starting off, his production value is of a high quality. That is something I truly appreciate as he’s an indie artist I can follow and share with others and be taken seriously. He has three songs I really like, but I would have to say that my favorite is “I’m Just Snacking.”  The song to me is about two lovers who are separated and dating other people, but one or both of them doesn’t see the point in being with other people when they both know they are the ones for each other. The song is fairly upbeat but holds some sad tones to it.

I would recommend Gus to anyone who just wants hear something different and expand their horizons.
