Young Summer – Alright

Young Summer

Young Summer

Young Summer is the project of Washington-based musician, Bobbie Allen.

Resilient from her teens, Bobbie taught herself guitar and got through debilitating stage fright by-way-of open mic nights and club dates. This is perhaps why the Young Summer sound gives off three times as much oomph as you’d expect from a solo artist.

The first track from her new EP is a summery jam called ‘Alright’. It’s about unrequited love and follows Young Summer’s three year hiatus.

Sounds like: HAIM, MUNA, Wet, VÉRITÉ

GEMS – Sinking Stone

Gems

Gems

Cinematic pop D.C. duo, GEMS has shared a dramatic new video for ‘Sinking Stone’ as an exclusive short film for DAZED.

The beautifully shot short film is a gritty depiction of young love from an intensely visual perspective, courtesy of BRTHR (Alex Lee/ Kyle Wightman). The portrayal of an “epic, feverish love tale” has been achieved with the help of the notorious ATL Twins.

The track is taken from the ‘Medusa EP’, which came out late last year on Never Age Records, and is available to buy here.

GEMS is currently in the studio working on their highly anticipated debut full length album, due for release in 2015.
