Although “End of the World” isn’t Gulfer’s first pandemic song, it’s their first that explores our collective adaptations to new realities. Over intricate call and response guitars that seem to fold in on themselves, Vincent Ford sings of themes parallel to the end of the world: selective memory holes; playing with fire without a care for consequence; and finding your own new ways to cope and just get through the day. End times be damned, “End of the World” is decidedly more melodic than punk, with hooks that demonstrate the band’s ability to write songs on any part of the experimental rock spectrum. Its keenly constructed rhythms keep Gulfer’s compositions unpredictable and inventive, perhaps a figurative mirror in which the band can optimistically see a way out of the impending end of the world.


we are one of the same
our mistakes were made
we're subject to erase this memory

you were painting frame
crammed on a train
where people’s complaints feel like a memory

you can't believe what you see
everyday's a new end of the world
you can pray or complain
I'll figure a new way to get on with this day to day
all our lives

we were always amazed
by getting away with
chasing the flames for a good trip

you see the mundane ideas
the smoke in the trees
don’t terrify me for a minute

fickle assumptions
I figured a temper
im first with the fingers stuck when it’s the end outside
but i’ll be the last to quit this

grab on to your seat
it was faster than a car crash
it’s coming back to me now
matters what’s remembered
pictures of our failures
I imagine how you see it too
blinded by the streetlights
buried in the back like
I don't wanna see this yeah I don't wanna see this
matters what’s remembered
pictures of our failures

it’s funny how you see it too
