Gus Dapperton recently dropped a music video to his newest single ‘Post Humorous’ and it’s a vibe we can all relate to. From the comfort of his own lounge room, Dapperton and his bandmates reunited to perform ‘Post Humorous’ live (while of course maintaining that social distancing rule).
Gus Dapperton is an American singer/songwriter best known for his appearance on BENEE’s 2019 hit ‘Supalonely’. Since then, he has released his debut album Where Polly People Go to Read and is set to release his second album, Orca, September of 2020. Brendan Rice, who goes by the stage name Gus Dapperton, was born in Warwick, New York, in 1997. After finishing high school, he went on to study music technology (and worked on his own songs) at Drexel University in Philadelphia. Dapperton began releasing tracks online in 2016, establishing a fan base with songs such as ‘Moodna, Once with Grace’ and ‘Ditch' which he recorded and arranged in his bedroom.
Dapperton’s breakout began in 2017 with his single ‘I’m Just Snacking’ and the accompanying music video that quickly went viral. Soon after, he began touring the US and Europe, was approached to compose a song for the Netflix original Thirteen Reasons Why, and also released the four-track Yellow & Such EP. If the year 2017 wasn’t busy enough for the young artist, another video went viral, this time for ‘Prune, You Talk Funny’, which to this date has racked up over 9 million views.
In anticipation of his new album, dive into this live performance of the bittersweet ‘Post Humorous’ and make sure to keep an eye out as we approach Gus Dapperton’s second album release in September of 2020 via AWAL.
