New Music Monday. This week’s selection has an interesting story. The Gems formed when they all left the band Thundermother. Thundermother had just completed a tour of the States opening for The Scorpions, supporting their new album. From what I could gather, the founder and guitarist Filippa Nässil of Thundermother, wanted to let one of the bandmates go, but in an act of solidarity, all three left to form The Gems. Filippa has done this before, as Thunermother has had a series of different members over the years. Anyway, this is The Gems’ first single release as a band. I’m sure a full-length album is coming soon.
