On new standalone single "Clean", the Montreal four-piece Gulfer return with their signature style of glimmering, propulsive, and emotionally driven indie-rock. The dial is turned to a slightly darker tone with lyrics that hint towards a surrealist and fictional story of an employee on the run after taking the life of their boss.
“Nicki ties up looser ends / goes to work and then comes home again / when you work all day and watch the boss get paid / no nice heart last long in this game".
The song’s eerie and nightmarish sense of imagery is intentionally left to be uncertain as the band subtly pushes their narrative scope. "At this point in our career, I realized the songs could be about anything," says guitarist and vocalist, Vincent Ford. Even still, the gentle and melodic sensibility that has made Gulfer a cult favorite still shines brighter than ever.
