Guster launch fake dating site ‘Gusto’ with new music video


Sponsored by Studio 52. A community artist space located in the heart of Allston, and is proud to support the Boston music scene and local artist community.

It’s time to ditch your Tinder and Bumble profiles — the dating app of the future has arrived, and it’s called Gusto.

Fresh off the release of their eighth studio album Look Alive, Guster have shared their (unfortunately fake) new dating platform in conjunction with their video for “Overexcited,” released yesterday (April 25).

Revolving around the tagline “find your future lover,” the vid fleshes out the awkward anxiety — and misery — of cycling through first dates, with Gusto and lead singer Ryan Miller as the centerpieces of the story.

Albeit not an actual way to meet other people, the site www.withgusto.app does exist and features an account generator, which fans can use to make phony profile screens.

Check out the vid below, “sign up” for Gusto here, and catch the band playing the Sunday slate of next month’s Boston Calling Music Festival.
