Jay Watson of Pond and Tame Impala has another album for us under the moniker, GUM. By next week GUM’s third studio album, A Flash In The Pan, will be out and about. For now, we can bask in the bipolar-explosion otherwise known as “Gemini,” GUM’s brand new single. From the start of this track to the end, it feels as if we are on Space Mountain soaring through a multitude of endless galaxies. The jumpy, high-speed chorus contrasts well with the looped, pulsating intro where Watson’s voice and perspective seems trapped. For he understands the duality of being a Gemini because he is one himself.
Check out the tune here, and get ready for blast off!
