“Really entertaining tracks.” – NOISEY
“Liquid psych-funk.” – STEREOGUM
“A synth-tastic electro get up.” – MUSIC FEEDS

GUM, the moniker of Tame Impala/Pond multi-instrumentalist Jay Watson has today surprised fans with future-soul single ‘Gemini.’  This comes coupled with the album teaser for his third consecutive self-produced album, Flash In The Pan  which will be released November 11 via Spinning Top Music and available for pre-order here.
Having supported Mac DeMarco on his Australian tour earlier this year, Flash In The Pan follows GUM’s 2014 debut Delorean Highway and 2015’s Glamorous Damage, which spurred psych-pop jam ‘Anesthetized Lesson‘ and given the 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.

“‘Gemini’ is the first song I recorded for the album, and probably the most immediate,” says GUM.  “I’m not really a fan of star signs. It’s kind of a song about people pinning stuff happening in their lives on things like star signs and religion. I am a Gemini though, so there’s the bipolar/duality thing in there is as well.”

Recorded almost entirely at home throughout 2015 and 2016, the LP features sampladelic-funk ‘If You’re Gonna Love Again’ and ‘Deep Razz,’ as well as the space-ballad “Distorted Star.”
