GEMS instantly hooked me in with their lovely debut single “Void Moon.” Everything that they have shared us since has had us swooning for more, making them one of my favorite new bands to emerge in recent months.
Seeing them play at SXSW was a treat as it was one of their earliest shows to date, in the rawest form. They put on a lovely show and brought the songs to live deftly. It’s still an early juncture of GEMs career, so I’m sure they will only improve with every show that comes to them.
Their style of music and the boy/girl duo definitely calls to mind comparisons of Beach House, and it isn’t too far off. Their a lush, dreamy, quality to their music that hits like a full bodied wave that takes your spirit far, far, away.
