I think what impresses me the most about Brooklyn’s Gemology is how impressively they stop short on so many elements. “First & Last” is a soft piece of sensual electropop, evocative both vocally and in its melodic layers. One more layer and it becomes cluttered. Any more focus on the vocals and it becomes too explicit. This track finds a fantastic balance of substance and sexy.
I suppose the song served its purpose: I need more fromGemology. Listen to “First & Last” here.
