“Accepting defeat from that little voice of persuasion in your head and becoming attached to the alter ego; it can feel like someone else is in control of you. You become a vessel of thoughts and feelings that aren’t necessarily your own, and you get to escape for a while.” Gemini. The man with two personalities, the twin, the alter ego.
We all have that desire to give in to the little voice on our shoulder, not caring about what may happen. This is the sentiment behind new single ‘Gemini’ from Australian duo PLGRMS, released 23rd November via London-based singles club 0E0E.
‘Gemini’ stands up to its name in sound and lyrics, showing another side to the duo through a darker, more brooding sound compared to previous singles. ‘Gemini’ is a bit darker and slinkier’ explains Jonathan Bowden, one half of the Australian duo alongside singer-songwriter Jacob Pearson. “While ‘Gemini’ still harbours elements of the previous singles, we were keen to give it its own distinct flavour…’Gemini’ was a real team effort between both Jake and I and our producer, Ross James.”
PLGRMS’ newest offering follows previous singles ‘Fools And Their Gold’, and debut ‘Pieces’, which have collectively garnered 3million streams so far on Spotify/Apple, 150k SoundCloud and 20k Shazam, as well as the support of Stereogum, The Line Of Best Fit, Hillydilly, Indie Shuffle, Clash, Beats 1, Radio X, triple j and BBC Radio 6.
PLGRMS is the Sydney-based duo of singer-songwriter Jacob Pearson and multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Jonathan Bowden.
