A truly gorgeous
second album from Liverpool-born Gem Andrews, this essay in alt-country
has an honesty and rawness that cuts to the quick in a dark and
melodious meditation on the forces pushing us from the home and then
pull us back again.
With a new confidence, control and maturity, guided and produced by
the Daintees' Martin Stephenson, Berlin-based Gem takes us with
her on many journeys across countries, continents and oceans, seamlessly
blending the shifting landscapes with the movements of her heart.
Vancouver's poignant lyrics are wrapped in delicate harmonies and
uplifted by a skillful and intuitive eight-piece band.
The album is deeply rooted in alt-country, with Gem's fiercely
independent voice carrying inflections of Patsy Cline, Lucinda
Williams and Kate & Anna McGarrigle, in whose Heart Like
a Wheel' Gem makes homage yet in the process contrives to render
distinctively her own.
