Gus Dapperton has always been obsessed with building new worlds. It's been part of his passion since he started making songs in Garageband, a creator's mindset that eventually shaped two independent albums of defiantly original alt-pop. Now on "Henge" Dapperton goes even further, immersing himself in bold details and immersive songwriting to conjure a twilight world that permanently hovers between sunset and sunrise throughout 11 mercurial songs. Dapperton's love of sonic world-building has deep roots. The Warwick, New York native didn't grow up in a traditionally musical family, but there was always something blasting from the radio. As much as he loved music, he didn't think he would ever make his own. By the time college came around, his confidence had blossomed. He soon dropped out and released a series of independent EPs as well as the acclaimed albums "Where Polly People Go to Read" and "Orca". While the scope of "Henge" is vast and ambitious, Dapperton's music maintains the intimacy that made his previous offerings so resonant.
