From the bandcamp page when the debut free EP was issued in the summer of 2012:-
GUMS! features members of anarchic institutions The Plimptons, post-hardcore devotees Orphans, Edinburgh dream-popsters Collar Up and monster riff experts Headless Kross.
Mixing moments of Tom Waits balladry with Arab Strap’s conversational tone, the dream-like lilt of Morrissey’s “Vauxhall and I” and moments of punk energy recalling The Buzzcocks at their rawest, the six songs on the EP create a series of eclectic vignettes which both muse on the underside of Summer in the city and provide a poignant reflection on Summers past.

Taken from said release. You’ll love or loath this 140 seconds of pop music. I’m a lover.
