Introducing the New Band of ex-Thundermother Members: Guernica Mancini, Emlee Johansson & Mona Lindgren

New Swedish rock trio THE GEMS present their first song ever, the stunning standalone single “Like A Phoenix”! The band consisting of three ex-Thundermother members – vocalist Guernica Mancini, drummer Emlee Johansson and guitarist/bassist Mona Lindgren – rises from the ashes on the powerful official music video, edited by Johansson.

While THE GEMS are currently in the process of finishing production on their debut album, the trio is already performing live internationally. Next Wednesday, June 21, fans will have the chance to catch THE GEMS’ energetic rock’n’roll show for the first time in Germany, when the band headlines at the Kieler Woche!

THE GEMS on “Like A Phoenix”:

”This song is all about getting up when you’ve been pushed down, not letting the negative words of others define you. Rise like a phoenix – the main focus is to empower and give you the motivation to never give up. The video is about the “rebirth” of us as a band and how we, through fire, have become something much stronger and fearless. We felt it was the perfect first single on our new journey as THE GEMS, and we absolutely love the song!!”

Chris Ianuzzi: Distant Suns/Wide Side two-sided single

Story: Ralph Greco, Jr. Spacey blips flow into a synth-led danceable beat, with vocals making more music than they do an actual statement on the first tune of NYC-composer Chris Ianuzzi’s new double single. This tune, “Distant Suns,” keeps up with its blurring, plastic-pulling video-game sounds, and swirling vocals throughout its mid-tempo four-minute + mélange. […]
