Gustaf share Beck remix of “Design” + announce UK & US headline tours

“An art punk band from Brooklyn with rave reviews. They’ve opened for many high-profile acts, including Beck, even though their debut single, “Mine,” is less than four months old. Fans of Talking Heads and Television will want to keep an eye on this band.”

“Drawing on old school NYC art-punk, “Mine” is a snappy two-minute tune of talky, bass-driven post-punk. It’s got the confident ego of Alan Vega and the sass of The B-52s.”

“Impossible-to-resist grooves…If super serious scene bands send your eyes rolling to the back of your head, Gustaf will win you back around.

“One of the hardest working…and reliably fun bands in New York”

“Some worthy competition for ‘Losing My Edge’-style self-deprecation. Add some deliciously clashing riffs and you’ll be wishing cross-Atlantic air travel was a less ill-advised proposition.”

After a stellar year that saw them release their debut album and join IDLES on a largely sold-out nationwide tour, Brooklyn art punks Gustaf have returned with a fiery remix of their track “Design” by none other than the multi-time Grammy-winner Beck. Their friendship with Beck blossomed after he invited them to play a secret loft party at his New York apartment, and his re-work of their first ever recorded single comes alongside a throughly enjoyable Interview Magazine piece in which they discuss the merits of creating and sharing outside of the box. Today, they’re also announcing a slew of headline dates across the United States and the UK, as well as a Talkhouse conversation with tourmates IDLES.
