Without skipping a beat, GusGus continue their early-year momentum with the release of another sonically engrossing single, “Our World”.
The six-minute cut marks the third single off their forthcoming album, Mobile Home, and kicks the catalog into overdrive. The critically acclaimed bands’ most high-octane track yet, “Our World” offers a lusciously ethereal scoop of rave-infused pulsating synths. The single is out now via their imprint, Oroom.
Turn on the speaker and crank up the volume. For those who opted to “Stay The Ride” following GusGus’ last release, “Our World” unlocks the door to their creative kingdom. Driven forward by Daníel Ágúst’s seductive vocals, Margrét Rán’s commanding chorus lead, and an explosion of quivering synths, “Our World” provokes the rave nostalgia in all of us.
As electronic veterans themselves, GusGus have continuously proven their ability to encapsulate a moment in an immaculate production, and their latest is no exception to the rule. A sonic exhibit of their artistic perspective, “Our World” provides us with an escape from our current reality. Close your eyes and allow yourself to be immersed in the inner workings of their world.
Following the announcement of their new album, Mobile Home, in late 2020, GusGus has been working overtime to prepare for the anticipated release slated for May 28th, 2021. In addition to sharing two singles, “Higher” and “Stay The Ride”, the trio recruited original founding members Stefan Arni and Siggi Kinski to direct their music video counterparts.
The director duo, best known for their work under the alias Arni & Kinski (Sigur Ros, Kiasmos, Olafur Arnalds), translated the music into a series of glorious melodramatic visuals. Arni & Kinski’s unique directorial style elevated each track into a new creative dimension, with both videos reaching over 700,000 combined views to date. The partnership continues with a brand-new music video for “Our World”, which can only speak for itself.
