Gus Dapperton is making funky pop music. The Warick, New York, native shared a bit of his process with The FADER and WeTransfer. "I think my creative process is unique just because I am an artist who cares so much about the lyrics," Dapperton explains in this short documentary. At 21 years old, Dapperton is exploring layering multiple meanings into his work. "If I didn't make music, I would just spontaneously combust."
