Swedish Rock trio The Gems have released their first song, the standalone single “Like a Phoenix”. The band consisting of three ex-Thundermother members, including vocalist Guernica Mancini, drummer Emlee Johansson, and guitarist/bassist Mona Lindgren, have also released an official music video, edited by Johansson.
The band comments 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!!
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’ Rock’n’Roll show for the first time in Germany, when the band headlines at the Kieler Woche.
