‘Forgive Me’ is the sixth song in GEMS‘ Every Full Moon series.
This song really seemed to materialize by itself, as if written by something that was neither me nor Clifford. Music blows my fucking mind because it has the power to transcend the most trying circumstances. Sometimes the two of us have a hard time being in the same room together, but out of that tension something incredibly beautiful can emerge. Music can make you forget whatever you were so angry about and get lost in a dream. -Lindsay, GEMS
Lindsay Pitts and Cliff Usher of GEMS have released “Poison,” the latest single in their Every Full Moon series. “Cliff and I started writing ‘Poison’ before we ended our romantic relationship,” explains Lindsay. “It laid untouched for a good year before we stumbled across it again. At first, resurrecting it brought me back to a really painful time in my life and elicited some heartbreaking visceral memories. However, we ended up breathing light into something we had started during a time of isolation and darkness.”
The Every Full Moon series follows their 2015 album, Kill the One You Love, available now from Carpark Records. Listen to all of the Every Full Moon singles here.
