Washington, DC

DC’s dream-pop duo, Gems, will perform new songs and their debut EP, Medusa. The duo makes romantic, heartbreaking music: Clifford John’s supporting, low voice balances Lindsay Pitts’ haunting pitch. They effortlessly weave their voices with hazy guitar sounds, lush synthesizers, all punctuated by a strong, danceable beat. Evoking the simultaneous drama and ease of falling in love, their cinematic, dream-pop sounds have garnered positive press, and they have played alongside indie favorites such as Foster the People and Lana Del Rey. Gems’ music will complement the visual pieces scattered throughout the fifth floor.
