About GUM

Girl Underground Music is an online platform driven around the goal to provide underground artists a platform, and viewers a place to discover new music. Primarily serving new and local artists in the long lost art of interviews and reviews, GUM considers all genres and form of arts as submissions.

GUM also can’t believe we’re still around.
