Back in March, Gus Dapperton and director/longtime collaborator Matthew Dillon Cohen had the idea for the video for his single “Post Humorous,” intending to shoot it much earlier, but production was ultimately halted due to the pandemic shutdown. After four months of lockdown, Dapperton reunited with Cohen to safely get to work on the project. Filmed at Brooklyn’s The Sultan Room, Dapperton portrays a struggling young comic who gets himself into trouble, bringing the bittersweet song to life. Watch here
Currently climbing the Alternative radio charts, “Post Humorous” will be featured on Gus Dapperton’s forthcoming new album along with previously released track “First Aid,” Orca, out this September 18th via AWAL. The 10 song LP was written and produced by Dapperton, with Spike Stent (Frank Ocean, Lady Gaga, Beyonce) mixing the album. Pre-order is available HERE.
Gus also performed for AV Club’s House Shows, where he gave an exclusive first glimpse of another Orca track “Medicine.” Watch HERE.
