An honor to have my song ‘Heartfuck’ on the podcast eleven pop songs in the right company of other great shoegaze, dreampop and post-punk artists. My german is not the best but thought I heard some ‘düsterich’ ‘pompös’ and ‘fantastisch’… If your german is better than mine – make sure to check out the show HERE!
Nice surprise! Seems like top Swedish music magazine GAFFA Sverige has added all songs of ‘For Us Lonely Souls’ onto their playlist. Thank you for keeping an eye on me Gaffa! Listen to the playlist HERE.

To celebrate the release of my new album ’For Us Lonely Souls’ on the 28th of February I will hit the road early March for some special shows through Germany. This time I will bring Jolanda Moletta (from SHE OWL) on keyboards and Jack Grewe on drums. It will be more loud, quiet, psychedelic, epic, atmospheric and beautiful than ever.

The second single and title track from my upcoming album “For Us Lonely Souls” is today available on all streaming platforms.
This is the song that opened my mind for the future. It helped me find the reason I share my music at all. I am a troubled soul in a world where I really have to struggle to find my place. But I want to believe I can, and that we all can. This is the reason I create at all, to understand this world and to be able to connect with you, and music is the most absolute way for me to do it.
Next Friday, the 23rd of August, my second single and title track from my upcoming album “For Us Lonely Souls” will be released on all streaming platforms. Thanks to UK’s Freq you can already hear the track today as well as getting a brief insight into the recording process of the album HERE.
I will be performing two special shows this August. First is a powerful and intense one at Brückenfestival Nürnberg together with SHE OWL as the trio-collective Owl-Eye-Ring and the other a melancholic and minimalistic solo show in Reichenbach at Street-HAPPENING.

Thank you Comeherefloyd for following my journey, having a peak through my GR-sunglasses and writing such a poetic review about “Will I Be Alone For The Rest Of My Life?” – Read the full review HERE.
“Gus Ring writes songs with a chip on his shoulders. A look at the world is different from a pair of GR sunglasses. It’s rose tinted, but never long enough to bring the kind of coma to your reality.”
Gracias ZoneNights for your beautiful words about my new single! Read the whole review HERE.

“Will I Be Alone For The Rest Of My Life?” has this gothic shroud cloaked over it… with a chorus that sits, like a black raven, on your shoulder. And never leaves.”
In late March/April I will leave the safety of hiding out in the studio to do a couple of german shows as Owl-Eye-Ring together with SHE OWL. Equally excited and nervous. Just like it should be.

“I’m captivated straight from the start. It’s a fragile, melancholy opening, which similarly to many tracks on that ‘Hypnoseas’ album, uses sparse instrumentation. Totally exposed, the attention shifts onto the lyrics which are poignant and powerful.”
Thank you for this beautiful review and your continuos support Nordic Music Review 🖤Read the full review HERE.
“Es una canción que con solo dar play invita a dar un interminable viaje musical a través de sus melodías.”
Muchas gracias ZoneNights for writing such beautiful words and sharing the music video for “You Deserve So Much More” with Argentina! 🖤 Read the full review and watch the video HERE.
Thank you Comeherefloyd for really letting my music into your hearts with THIS beautiful review!
“When the chorus hits, your emotions well up with upheaval. Much of the angst and past memories of disappointments and tragedies, frighteningly come up to the surface, and you get angry. Angry about how things have come to this point in time. Angry about how you have been used up like a throw away can. Angry – that the world seems to be against you. But then the supple and empathetic picking and vocals of Gus, calms your soul, in parallel to the person you really ARE. ‘You Deserve So Much More’ is powerful, and in this realm of empowerment, a switch must be turned on. You can’t change the past, so you have only one path to salvation.”
