We previously heard from Somerville, Mass.-based bedroom balladeers Gem Club when they released the visuals for “Sevens,” one of the highlights off last year’s Acid And Everything EP. As this post’s title implies, the trio of frontman Christopher Barnes, cellist Kristen Drymala, and vocalist Ieva Berberian have come a long way since last fall. They recently signed a deal with Hardly Art, which will release Gem Club’s proper debut, Breakers. Anyone wondering if the band has strayed too far from their 2010 release will be happy to know they’re still stuck on that lush, slow-building vibe here. At least, that’s what we’re hearing on the chilling Breakers title-track.
The album drops Sept. 27. View its track listing below and listen to “Breakers” here.
