When we last heard from Australian DJ and producer GEM, she was championing the release of ‘Rich Girl’, her latest single and a stunning reworking of the Hall and Oates’ classic. It was an instant hit, the sort of EDM infused anthem that took you by the hand and whisked you away to a vibrant pop world, instantly brightening even the greyest of days. Now, GEM is back on our radar and ready to release her defiant new single, ‘If I’m Honest’.
A true summer anthem, ‘If I’m Honest’ is a warm, breezy and undeniably romantic new release from GEM, ushering in waves of nostalgic percussion, glowing guitars and of course, classic driving bass lines. Primed with an undeniable groove the perfectly suits GEM’s heavenly vocals, the new single transcends the mainstream pop sounds that we’ve all become accustomed to, blending wistful romanticism into the mix and highlighting the sultry synths and deep, shifting melody.
Described as “a combination of Miami Horror, Owl Eyes, and Dua Lipa”, ‘If I’m Honest” continues GEM’s assault on the modern pop charts, illustrating her power and passion with crystal clear clarity. Both refreshingly modern and joyously nostalgic, the new single maintains a strong pop sensibility while also paying tribute to bygone eras from which GEM draws her inspiration.
Mixed and mastered by her ‘Malibu’ team of Serge Courtois and Dale Becke, ‘If I’m Honest’ is arguably GEM’s finest release to date, and it’s available now on all major platforms, along with our very own Spotify playlists.
