“Blink” Music: Gem Club ‘Polly’

A haunting track with a disturbingly beautiful video. Both the sound and the visuals are strange yet really engaging. Dark and mysterious. It reminds me of Cindy Sherman‘s artworks. Massachusetts-based band, Gem Club, are Christopher Barnes, Kristen Drymala and Ieva Berberian. This track, Polly, is from their second album that was released in January called ‘In Roses’.

From the tracks that we’ve heard, Gem Club seem to be all about a rather thoughtful, intense, quiet and melancholy sound, kind of in the genre that would encompass London Grammar, Paul Thomas Saunders and maybe even Beck.

If you’re having a contemplative day, then this is for you.
