Before GusGus’ 11th studio album Mobile Home arrives in late May, ‘Love Is Alone’ offers fans another taste of the record ahead of its highly anticipated release. On the latest single, Daniel Agust and longtime collaborator John Grant floats over the patient synth groove with ease. Meanwhile, the production blends abrasive melodies with a pop-centric mindset and experimental drum work, making for an intriguing listening experience.
 
The EP moves forward into the first of two remixes from GusGus member Biggi Veira, ‘Stay The Ride (Natty dub).’ Veira’s mix utilizes the original’s vocals and immediately recognizable synths, but shifts towards a smooth organic house dub feel for the summer. Veria’s second offering to the EP, ‘Higher (Nasty dUb),’ is a sharp contrast to the warm tones of its predecessor. Written with out-of-control raves in mind, Veira’s “Nasty dUb” is a techno hammer meant to ignite dancefloors. ‘Higher (Nasty dUb)’ has already received heavy rotation from club and radio DJs, and now this club weapon sees the official release it deserves. The band also called upon Icelandic electronic shapeshifter Bjarki to inject his club-crushing, blistering sound into “Our World”. Bjarki’s ‘Our World (Bjarki Swipe Right Mix)’ offers a beautifully chaotic slice of techno bliss.

In anticipation of the full album release, GusGus has announced a special forthcoming live stream performance presented on Moment House, the premium digital live platform that connects artists and their core fans for global, elevated ticketed experiences. GusGus’ live stream will take place on Saturday, May 29th, and will see the band perform their new album Mobile Home in full from Sundlaugin, the legendary studio that belongs to Sigur Rós. Tickets are now on sale HERE.
