Gus Dapperton, with his signature bowl cut and colorfully painted nails, is catching the eyes of fashion heads and music fans alike, especially after the release of his newest EP.

Under the name You Think You’re a Comic!, the New York artist exceeds his fans’ expectations once again. Like his previous albums, Dapperton’s artistry and unique style permeates through his music and videos. The latest EP includes four tracks, like the joyful single “Prune, You Talk Funny” and the more angsty, slow song “I Have Lost My Pearls”, which references John Steinbeck’s “The Pearl”.

In an interview with Vogue, he described his music as “80’s influenced and kind-of dreamy”. The influence is seen in the synth-soaked song, “Amadelle With Love”.

On the cover of an older album, Yellow and Such, Dapperton sported a pale pink sweatshirt and pearl earrings and at a show in East Williamsburg, Dapperton was also seen wearing blue eye shadow and his usual nail polish, showing how androgynous is look is. In the same interview with Vogue, he said that his biggest style icon is David Bowie. He said: “I don’t try to dress like him specifically, but I really respect his passion for changing [his look] as the decades went on and changing up his style after each album,” he says. “He had such a vivid imagination.”

Dapperton is on a tour now, with a total of 29 concert dates. On May 1st, he will be playing at Lost Lake Lounge in Denver. Tickets can be bought here.
