Gems | Sinking Stone

July 22, 2013 at 5:33 am 1 comment

Often simple is the best. “Sinking Stone” is a song from Washington, D.C. duo Gems that has an old-school late 80s vibe, with heavy reverb, and steady heartbeat percussion. It’s a song that makes one nostalgic about all those epic last-dance tracks about themes of love, loss, and trust. Lindsay Pitts is the songstress behind the pretty vocals, casting out her emotional appeal with a cool beauty: “Could you ever love me again? / I need to know / Our love’s not a sinking stone.” Clifford John Usher is the man behind front-woman, the one assembling the slow-building drive of the song’s crushing, impassioned instrumentals. One of my favorite tracks of 2013. Follow Gems on twitter and facebook. — David D. Robbins Jr.
