Listen: Gems - Tangled Memories
Fans of Purity Ring will enjoy Gems.
Gems are in the process of putting out their debut album Kill The One You Love, October 30, and their current single, Tangled Memories, is a mix of gentle guitar riffs and a bass-loaded breakdown that puts Purity Ring to shame. Tangled Memories starts with echoing guitars and light snares akin to floating on fat, sluggish afternoon clouds. Then a brawling bass kicks in around the halfway mark, dramatically changing up the mood. And this shift is what makes this track stand-out, it combines the often free-floating mood of synth music with it's more euphoric bass-driven cousin. And you can't go wrong with some extra snares thrown in. Kill The One You Love is coming out via Carpark Records which is home to Toro Y Moi so to make a undeducated guess that the rest of the album will be good isn't actually too stupid.
