After a steady trickle of singles, local dream-pop duo GEMS released its debut EP, Medusa, today, paired with the premiere of a previously unheard song, “Ephemera.”

“Ephemera,” the EP’s opening track, starts out noticeably less drenched in pathos and reverb than previous singles—-until its blissful chorus kicks in.

GEMS plays an EP release show Thursday night at U Street Music Hall with Alex Winston and WET.

Listen to “Ephemera” below.
