GEMS’ sparkling and finely-tuned debut EP, Medusa, was one of the most promising (and one of my favorite) releases of last year, so it’s nice to see that they’re still getting some push with a new video for “Sinking Stone,” which is probably the heaviest track on that release. The video, which is directed by BRTHR, captures the hazy desperation of the song well — glossy, slowed-down visuals depict two off-the-rails lovers as they joyride cop cars, do drugs, and play with guns. It all ends with a gruesome Bonnie & Clyde-esque standoff in the desert. It’s a haunting and atmospheric video, appropriate for the talented young duo, and you can watch below.
Medusa is out now on Never Age.
