Drummers Jacob Evans and Adrian Van Batenburg and keyboardists Gary Palmer and Daniel Rapport make up Seattle based instrumental electronic outfit Gems.
According to them, the idea behind the band “was to create an environment that allows for sonic experimentation and improvisation, while still retaining a feel that can only come about through an organic songwriting process”.
Gems have recently announced the release of their debut album entiled Tall Mountain. The effort, due out on April 2nd via Don’t Be A Lout, features guest collaborations with vocalist Lotte Kestner and Okanomodé.
Ahead of the release, the foursome have shared ‘Ice Dime’, the first cut from the album, and it caught our ears straight away. Don’t let this gem slip away.
