Multi-instrumentalist and perhaps one of the hardest working artists around, GUM (aka JayWatson) has somehow found the time to write and record a fresh collection of solo tracks forthe first time since 2020. The newest release“Race to the Air”soars into view like a giganticinterplanetary craft, it takes in a sparkling vista of cosmic disco-all robo grooves and quiveringstrings.
GUM has gifted five studio albums since 2014, somehow finding time between hiscommitments with Pond and Tame Impala. Watson’s restless imagination has treated us tosome of the most sonically diverse explorations of the past decade and has seen him take thestage as a special guest for Mac DeMarco, Mini Mansions and Angel Olsen, in addition to sold-out shows in Australia andpacked rooms across Europe, the UK and USA.
This is GUM’s first ever full US tour with a band!
