  • PREMIERE: Aus Producer Guard Drops Dark But Vibrant Taste Of Debut Album With 'Gaslight'
    POSTED May 20 2020

    Guard

    Today we're stoked to introduce you to a Melbourne-based electro pop connoisseur Guard, and his darkly honest new track Gaslight, premiering now on Cool Accidents.

    With trappy, tropical influences and pointed glitch-pop sounds, Gaslight was written about Guard's experience in therapy. "Through therapy, I was able to understand that trauma had led me to this moment and if I do not break the cycle, I am just heading for a life of constant re-traumatisation, fated to repeat the same dysfunctional mistakes. Understanding what gaslighting is, really changed my perspective on a lot of things."

    Drawing to mind the off-centre production of Paces or Broods, the good news for Guard fans new and old is that Gaslight marks the first sparks of ember on his debut album, The Identified Patient.

    "I feel that those who appreciate conceptual pop will understand my message and symbolism. I see my music as performative art through which I am exploring the theme of trauma. I hope that avid pop listeners find something to hook onto in my project. It is an extension of who I am. I am an artist and I am expressing my views and healing my trauma. I love that I am able to offer healing to those who relate to my experiences. I love releasing music."

    The Identified Patient will land on Friday 26th June but until then, wrap your ears around the album's first, very impressive single Gaslight. It's serious music wrapped in a technicolour package and as Guard says himself, if conceptual pop is up your alley, this will be just your thing.
