An exclusive live performance for Vevo DSCVR, the channel for the best in new music.
2020 was a big year for Gus Dapperton. The New York indie-pop singer dropped his second LP, ‘Orca,’ which both the press and fans praised for the insightful way it addressed mental health struggles. One outlet called the album his “most transparent and honest piece of work yet.” Showing off further evolution, Dapperton wasn’t afraid to add more danceable moments to his otherwise plaintive repertoire. At times, ‘Orca’ has a carefree vibe, like the disco-tinged “Palms.” In the same vein, check the job that he and fellow DSCVR artist BENEE’s did on the feel-good-in-isolation jam, “Supalonely,” which put the indie kids at the top of the charts. Style-wise, the singer even ditched his signature bowl cut last year, which had been his signature look since his opening-act days at Williamsburg gigs. But worry not, he’s still an unapologetic fashionista. So much so that he let one of his pals dot some new ink beneath his left eye. He says the tat symbolizes themes from the album. We think it looks cool as hell. Same for the two outfits he sported for his DSCVR performances of “Post Humorous” and “Medicine.” Hit the comments to tell us which one’s your fave.
