District Spotlight: GEMS – Sinking Stone
If you weren’t already sold on GEMS, Sinking Stone should have you more than convinced; this group has arrived, full throttle. The most recent single from this DC duo could very well be the cornerstone of their already impressive lineup. Sinking Stone has incredible, core-rattling depth that is driven ever deeper into the recesses of your soul via Lindsay Pitts’ dark and enchanting vocals. Stunning.
I highly recommend giving a listen to GEMS entire library of songs. In the sphere of the “chamber-pop” movement, I guarantee you will not find a band anywhere near this level. Hell, forget genres, GEMS are poised to be one of the best new bands of 2013. Being from DC, I’m sure I’ll be seeing a lot from GEMS in the near future. Catch them on their mini east coast tour this month.
