Untitled Group are proud to present the highly anticipated debut tour of indie-pop artist Gus Dapperton who with his recent album Where Polly People Go To Read, is iconically presenting a new and fresh place for pop culture and music. Having amassed millions of streams since its release, the album out via AWAL has attracted media attention from Pitchfork, Spin, Another Man Magazine, The Fader and more since its inception.
The Warwick, NY singer, songwriter, and vibe maestro invites you to take up residence deep inside of his subconscious as embodied by these ten tracks on the album.
“The album is basically what I see inside of my head, and it’s the dimension you’re entering when you hear it,” he explains. “It’s very personal and honest to me. There are a few emotional roller coasters. I’ve come to terms with reality and the inconveniences inherent in how I see things. Being able to express myself however I want, regardless of the result good or bad, makes me feel content and real.”
He also unpresumptuous-ly inched towards making such a statement since his emergence in 2016. A series of anthems a la “Prune, You Talk Funny,” “I’m Just Snacking,” and “Moodna, Once With Grace” generated tens of millions of streams and views as he hovered around 1 million monthly listeners on Spotify and dropped a pair of EPs—Yellow and Such  and You Think You’re a Comic! . Acclaimed by Vogue, The Fader, Pigeons & Planes, and Nylon and pegged among “10 Artists to Watch in 2019” by High Snobiety, he embarked on a globe-trotting journey that placed him in front of sold out audiences around the world. In the midst of such madness, he pieced together Where Polly People Go To Read back in his bedroom at his parents house. At the time, the record reflected the current ups and downs of his personal life.
“It captures the whole last year of my life,” he goes on. “The first four songs are the demise of a relationship and heartbreak. By the time the fifth song starts, it’s experiencing love once more.
