GUM ANNOUNCES EAST COAST TOUR + 'FLASH IN THE PAN' LP OUT NOW
Performing sold-out shows in London and New York, GUM - the moniker of Tame Impala/Pond multi-instrumentalist Jay Watson will return home this March for a series of east coast dates in support of 2016 surprise album Flash In The Pan. Having supported Mac DeMarco on his 2016 Australian tour and with a recent appearance on the line-up for Gizzfest, the Vision Circuit shows will take place in Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney, with special guests to be announced. Tickets available now.
Recorded almost entirely at home throughout 2015 and 2016, the LP features future-soul lead single ‘Gemini,' which received a vibrant visual treatment from director Sam Kristofski, who used left over 35mm and 16mm film stock from CSI: Las Vegas to bring the themes of the track to life. Audiences will also be treated to the sampladelic-funk 'If You’re Gonna Love Again' and 'Deep Razz,' as well as the space-ballad 'Distorted Star.'
Flash In The Pan follows GUM’s 2014 debut Delorean Highway and 2015’s Glamorous Damage, which spurred psych-pop jam ‘Anesthetized Lesson’ and accompanying remix treatment by bandmate and friend Kevin Parker. Both records were hailed by the likes of Pitchfork, NME and Stereogum and featured on the longlist of the Australian Music Prize.
