Snap Scene: Gemma Ray & Gris De Lin, Caravan Music Club – 29th April 2017

Berlin-based, British-born Gemma Ray and her band brought their unique torch song psychedelia to Australia this April in support of her latest album The Exodus Suite.
Released in mid 2016 – The Exodus Suite has earned Ray international praise, including Paste (“shadowy beauty”), Mother Jones (“Spinetingling”), American Songwriter (“riveting”), Mojo (“beautiful, as ever”), Uncut (“a moving collision of past and present”), Rolling Stone Australia (“deep and meaningful seduction”), and Rhythms Australia (“Trademark Gemma Ray, all space and luxurious, shimmering and ominous”) among others. Her sideways blues is cinematic and brooding, and sit more comfortably in the Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds/PJ Harvey school, “blowing sugary femme-pop out of the water” (NME).
