GUS RING

Gus Ring always felt like an outsider. Growing up in Sweden playing trumpet in orchestras, he later ended up screaming in metal and hardcorebands. From this Gus developed his unique style of fragile, dark, melancholic dreampop. His works has been compared by critics and fans to songwriters like Jeff Buckley and Damien Rice, and bands such as The Cure and Wovenhand. While touring Europe consistently Gus has released the two full-length albums Boredomtapes (2015) and Hypnoseas (2017), creating a dreamlike space of music, inviting the audience to just close their eyes and drift away.
