Brooklyn quintet Gustaf taps into the weird sends of entitlement that brings out the worst in humanity in thei new single “Mine.” It’s art rock peppered with punk twists and indie flair that yield a gauzy soundscape filled with biting sarcasm towards those who live in the world of their own ego. Check out the video directed by Joey Chirqui:

According to vocalist Lydia Gammill, “This song is about having a false sense of entitlement. Someone who feels attacked or like they’re being pushed out of their own world and not getting the credit they deserve. Someone with a delusional sense of self whose anger and frustration is humorous like the superintendent in a college frat movie. The opening lines make it seem like the narrator is being criticizing by someone else and they’re retaliation is like ‘you’ve got to be kidding me, you can’t say that about me! I invented water you punk!’ …. sort of.”

“Mine” is out now via Royal Mountain Records.
