about

In Roses is the second album from Massachusetts based Gem Club was recorded at Tiny Telephone, John Vanderslice's studio, in 2013. For In Roses, Gem Club worked along with arranger and conductor Minna Choi of the Magik Markers Orchestra to create and reshape the melancholy songs in fresh and unimaginable ways. The resulting album is more expansive, more majestic, and yet retains the intimacy of Gem Club's previous works. In Roses combines beauty and sadness with intimate and graceful songs about the realization that life is no longer happening the way we want. In Roses provides solace in song.

Track Name: Hypericum
dove colored in your dress
and they’re bringing in the bells
all you wanted you could’ve had
partly paralyzed and part of you is dancing

poured your skull out on that wall for years
run up the ones you thought that you could love
it’s the same chewed up scene
we’ve been turning in

i have been so unkind
you always needed so much
i have no more to give
slowly circles have come to close

how to lose these shuttered hearts
turn out the guests
tend to you now

at every instant i saw you then
so clearly for the first time crying
Track Name: Braid
eyes cast into the night
searching for someone
you needn’t stay so long
there’s time enough for us
to fall into a dream

no hands covering our kiss
everything is heaven
the surface never stops
the sky was all lit up
a thousand rays shot out
to carry him my love

there’s a sound
of years
all love
all hope
and a look
through your tears
i lost my hold
say to me
i’m yours
Track Name: Polly
we were lost
i felt us
drifting from our nature
towards that place
half nothing

i see you letting go

polly i need you now that you’re gone
