‘Prune, You Talk Funny’
After delivering his first EP Yellow and Such in August this year, New York-based indie pop artist Gus Dapperton has released another track, Prune You Talk Funny. A synth-driven indie rock track, the song feels like a melding of the distinct sounds of the four track EP. The vocal harmonies of Gum, Toe and Sole, the guitar drive of The Fool, the similar vocal style of Miss Glum and the Pursuit of Falling and the heavy synth and lyrical ambiguity of I’m Just Snacking are all apparent in Prune You Talk Funny.
Dapperton began creating and producing music as a teenager and released his first track in May 2016, Moodna, Once With Grace and then another in June of the same year, Ditch. While Dapperton’s music tends to be relatively slow, characterised by the ethereal ambience of synthesisers and an intricate yet modest guitar, working together over a pop-driven beat, Prune, You Talk Funny is his most upbeat, ‘pop’ release yet. While his other songs are not as sonically optimistic as Prune, You Talk Funny, his songs are all the type of pop music you can dance or sway to, much like Dapperton tends to do in his music videos, and his latest release is no different. At only 20 years old, the high quality of Dapperton’s lyrics, instrumentation and producing skills is incredibly impressive, and to be releasing his music independently is a testament to his burgeoning skill as an artist.
