GEMS Are The Best New Band You've Never Heard
If you love Goldfrapp, the xx, and Massive Attack, you are going to flip out when you hear their dark, sexy music.
GEMS are a duo from Washington, D.C. who have been making some extraordinarily gorgeous and sexy music over the past year.
The best place to start with their music is the title track from their debut EP, Medusa.
The band's visual style is just as striking as the sound of their music. Here's Pitts explaining why this is so important to them in a recent interview:
In this day and age it's impossible to separate visuals from the music. Music has always been the most important thing to me, but I recognize that most people are probably going to come across GEMS first on the Internet. I want them to experience it in a particular way. Black and white adds glamour. I want to cast a spell.
