Gus Dapperton – The Polly People US Tour

Combining a strong visual component with dreamily produced songs, sophisticated indie songwriter Gus Dapperton became known for colorful narrative videos and lovestruck songs that channeled ’90s influences. Working with mostly analog instruments and playing, arranging, and recording everything himself, the artist released songs online when he was still in his teens but began to break through with the 2017 single “I’m Just Snacking.” The song and its viral video caught on, and before long Dapperton was touring and being asked to create a song for the Netflix original series 13 Reasons Why. This exposed him to even more legions of fans, and he continued through 2018 with the release of the four-song You Think You’re a Comic EP followed a year later by his full-length debut, Where Polly People Go to Read.

Gus Dapperton was born Brendan Rice in Warwick, New York in 1997. After finishing high school he attended Drexel University in Philadelphia, studying music technology and working on his own songs. He soon left school and returned to New York, where he began developing the Gus Dapperton persona. Using analog synths, reverb-heavy vocal crooning, and an overall smoothly produced take on bedroom indie, he began releasing songs online in 2016, gaining some traction with compositions like “Moodna, Once with Grace” and “Ditch.” Early reviews of his sound drew comparisons to Mac DeMarco and King Krule’s hazy melodicism.
