GEMS share simmering new song “Soak” — listen

Lindsay Pitts and Clifford John Usher make internal conflict sound hypnotizing


Synthpop duo GEMS struggle to find a balance between death and hope, devastation and restoration on their upcoming album, Kill the One You Love. The group’s latest offering, “Soak”, encapsulates this tense dichotomy. At times, it plays out like a swiftly, aqueous lullaby; other moments, however, find Lindsay Pitts and Clifford John Usher striving to keep their heads above the water.

Kill the One You Love, the follow-up to 2013’s Medusa EP, is expected to drop on October 30th through Carpark Records. For more, check out “Living as a Ghost” and “Tangled Memories”.
