Gems

Gems

Combining raw percussive power with unearthly synth pads and melodies, Seattle based live-tronica four piece Gems deftly navigates through strange and beautiful territory ranging from ambient psychedelia to hard danceable grooves. Gems have garnered rave reviews from the Seattle music scene:

“Gems hit you with heavy grooves and polyrhythmic interplay, while Moog-generated liquid-sex bass-lines and champagne-bubble leads seduce you to the dance floor.” -The Stranger

“Gems are funky in a way that is almost unfathomable to the uninitiated.” –No Goddamn Dancing!

“[Gems’] songs are equally built for black lights and full dance floors as they are solo listening in the dark of one’s home.” -Weekly Volcano

Legendary German electronic musician Harald Grosskopf had this to say: “[Gems is] courageous in general times of retro mania. This music is opening the mind for a look into the future.”
