Gus Ring grew up in Sweden playing trumpet in orchestras to later end up screaming in metal- and hardcore bands. From these experiences, and with a fascination for nostalgia and shoegaze, Gus created his own unique style of dark, dreamy, melancholic pop. His works have been compared by critics and fans to songwriters like Jeff Buckley and Damien Rice, and bands such as Sigur Rós, Daughter and Wovenhand. With a wall of heavy mellotron bass, soaring ambient guitar, catchy piano lines and tribal drums complementing Gus Ring’s fragile yet powerful voice the trio is creating a dreamlike space of music that allows the listener to just close their eyes and drift away. During live performances, the audience is invited to progressively go deeper and deeper within, facing their innermost sorrow and letting it go. “Scandi-noir” - The Crack (UK) “Dreampop for bleeding hearts and suffering souls.” – Musikreviews (DE) “It doesn’t become generic for a second, and it’s to say the least, very original.” – Gaffa (SWE) “Gus Ring has something else, something unique, and not even if you’d point a gun to my head would I be able to put my finger on what it is.” – Drefvet (SWE)
