Last month a band from Washington D.C. named GEMS caught my heart with their affectionate dream-pop. Their debut song “Void Moon” was as strong of a introductory statement as one could ask for. They made a great impression, which they have furthered with another fantastic release.
“All I Ever” is the name of their 2nd single, and it’s just as wondrous of a exploration into the waves of dreamy chamber pop as “Void Moon.” The band recorded this at the beach as well. I could totally envision it’s music video featured on a darkly lit beach.
GEMS have a romantic quality about them that is undeniable. Writing beautiful melodies that sound like comforting soft waves is not something that they’re short of so far.
Let’s call these guys one of the acts to watch out for in 2013.
