GEMS are set to release their debut full-length album, Kill the One You Love, in just a few weeks on October 30th. Today, the duo are excited to share new song “w/o u,” a dreamy, dramatic song with haunting and emotive harmonies. Premiered originally on The Line of Best Fit, they write, “incredible songwriting” and deem it a Song of the Day.
Currently on tour with Autre Ne Veut, GEMS craft evocative shadow pop that tangles with existential longing and human truths. The LA-based duo of Lindsay Pitts and Clifford John Usher, GEMS inject a sense of hope into their debut album, as they embrace pop’s form and structure while reaching for something deeper in the shadowland of the soul.
Kill the One You Love arrives October 30th on Carpark Records, with pre-orders available via iTunes and Carpark Records.
