Opener Weightless In LA evokes rainbows reflected in raindrops on roses and Many Tears To Cry‘s falsetto “oo”s will coax closed-eye grins, guaranteed. The title track’s descending verse melody calls to mind Bon Jovi’s Livin’ On A Prayer and your internal jukebox might also detect delectable traces of Boston’s More Than A Feeling within GUM’s Down The Dream.
Low To Low is a bliss-bomb explosion and then Ultravox-esque synth effects counterpoise dinky toy xylophone during pragmatic closer, You Make Your Own Luck.
At once nostalgic and futuristic, Out In The World will blow your tiny mind like a gravity bong compression session.
Out In The World by GUM is out Friday June 12 via Spinning Top Records/Caroline.
