The Washington, DC duo GEMS, comprised of Lindsay Pitts and Clifford John, have developed their own brand of intoxicating, cinematic dream-pop that is deeply heartbreaking and romantic. The duo weaves a dark web of intimate male and female vocals, hazy guitars and lush synthesizers. Their songs are tragic, haunting, and tinged with melancholy and existential longing.
South London based vocalist and producer Laura Bettinson has been involved in a wide array of creative projects ever since graduating from Goldsmiths (legendary launch pad for Blur, Katy B and James Blake), encompassing art, music, film and fashion.
Most recently she’s been fronting ultraísta, the band formed by Radiohead/Beck/Paul McCartney producer Nigel Godrich alongside drummer Joey Waronker (REM/Beck/Smashing Pumpkins), with the outfit already receiving huge praise from critics worldwide. Four Tet, Matthew Herbert and David Lynch have remixed the band, all re-imagining Bettinson’s vocals in sublime fashion, in preparation for Ultraísta’s début album release in October and forthcoming tour of Europe, Japan and the USA.
FEMME is Bettinson’s solo project. Inspired by sixties girl groups and the attitude of artists like MIA, Debbie Harry and Cibdy Sherman, FEMME combines a playful, avant-pop aesthetic with big, beat-driven music. Stella McCartney is already a fan, choosing FEMME to soundtrack her 2012 catwalk collections, and a growing number of music-lovers are joining her…
Gearing up for the release of her debut album, FEMME released her debut in July to widespread critical acclaim, she is now preparing for the follow up single due beginning of November.
My Body is Jordan Bagnall and Darren Bridenbeck, the band is based out of Brooklyn NY and was formed in 2012. Jordan leads the project as the primary producer and songwriter. She uses her classical training to create catchy electronic pop that is modern and decidedly unique.
