[LISTEN] GEMS – “X Valentine”

GEMS are back with the third installment in their Every Full Moon series and this track is dedicated to all of those heartbroken singles out there on Valentine’s Day. “X Valentine” echos The xx a tiny bit as we’re given a tiny glimpse into the lives of two souls who still managed to stick it out through a rough split.

The song came out of an intensely emotional experience when I returned home over Christmas, found boxes of old photos and letters and realized this Valentine’s Day will be the first in almost a decade that Clifford and I won’t spend together,” stated Lindsay Pitts in an e-mail. “However, ‘X Valentine’ isn’t a funeral dirge, but a recognition of a past great love and the resilience that two people share as they move forward through life alone.”
