About this Artist

Gulfer are an explosive and agile indie/emo rock quartet from Montreal, Canada currently signed to Topshelf Records. Songwriters Vincent Ford and Joe Therriault drive the band's honest and vulnerable lyricism, sung in punkish, emo slants and backed with dexterous, technically proficient guitar playing. On their self-titled third record, released in 2020, the two shared the writing process in tackling themes of human nature, complex relationships, climate change, and the waning of youth. The group's rhythm section, comprised of bassist David Mitchell and drummer Julien Daoust, sustains Gulfer's signature explosiveness and bolsters the band’s nimble, intricate style. Their collective influences range from grunge to shoegaze, as well taking inspiration from indie rock-leaning emo contemporaries. The band is now gearing up to release their fourth album "Third Wind" in February of 2028.
