On her latest single ‘Upstairs,’ NYC singer/songwriter, GULES pulls you into a dark retro world of rocking chair sways aside overflowing ashtrays. With meltingly warm guitar chords paired with hauntingly beautiful lyrics, GULES accentuates the musty, vintage theme the song embodies. You can hear this in the deep 1950’s style vocal harmonies that swell and cushion around the telecaster guitar. Leaning into the homely theme, GULES recorded ‘Upstairs’ on a 4-track cassette recorder in her home. Hear the calming hiss of tape and the ominous creak of floorboards in ‘Upstairs’. 
The cover art by Anna Bosworth intrigues the listener and transports you into an older world. Blending a series of warm colored cut-outs, all of the images interject onto each other while drawing you further into the eerie scene. GULES’ ‘Upstairs’ is a refreshing take on vintage influenced indie music. The track takes the listener to a 50’s music era while sparking their ears with a modern indie arrangement, which is definitely something worth listening to.
