Brooklyn five-piece Gustaf share their art-punk single “Book”. Built upon repetitive guitar lines and a fluent drum pattern, the single is a glorious slice of guitar punk. Heading on tour with both Idles and Pillow Queens very soon, big things are in the pipeline for this band.
“Book is a song about the fallacy and fight of getting ahead vs being a head. It is seeking validation in the wrong places and from the wrong people. The hook, “I got ahead, I got a head” is a fun little taunt that we find either being thrown in our face or coming out our mouth. Everyone gets their moment up on the pedestal and everyone gets their turn falling off of it. Whether it’s up or down, ‘Book’ is about accepting whatever level you’re on.”
