Gus calls his music Acoustic Dreampop. Growing up playing trumpet in orchestras to then end up screaming in metal and hardcorebands, Gus found his love for fragile, honest, melancholic music in his early 20’s when he started writing and recording songs in his bedroom. In 2014 the first album “Boredomtapes” was recorded, mixed and mastered by Gus in a studio he built in his closet, as an experiment to what he could achieve doing everything himself. Gus then released the album as 100 cassette-tapes, each one with a hand-drawn cover. The release of the tapes lead to Gus booking his first European tour by himself, called “Boredomtour – Side A”, travelling through Sweden to Denmark and Germany. In 2016 Gus had now written two more EPs and started collaborating with German booking agency Jackalope ANM. Gus went on his second tour, “Boredomtour – Side B”, visiting new countries like Belgium, Switzerland and the Netherlands leaving people spellbound from the dreaminess and intimacy of the shows. As 2017 begins Gus Ring have an intense year of touring ahead as he releases his second album “Hypnoseas” through Daughters and Sons.
