Gemma Rogers is trying to help us get more out of our lives by telling social media “no” and instead spending time with our friends, family, and looking up at the sky. Tired of seeing the people around her missing out on real-world fun, the London artist values human connection above anything and is on a mission to inspire others to take a liberating break from the invasive world of technology with her new single STOP.
From the minimalist motorik riff that propels the tune, to the unexpected summer smash allure of the chorus and the surprise middle eight which justifiably, the poignant new track is as infectious as it is thought-provoking. STOP comes as the lead track from upcoming debut album No Place Like Home set for release this summer via Tiny Global Productions.
Gemma explains: “Switching off and returning to those delicate real time lovely spaces without technology clouding our vision is really important. I crave those spaces where it can just be you and those you’ve chosen to spend time with without any of the other noise. I met Alfie Jackson at a gig we were both playing at the old queens head in angel. We watched each other’s sets, went for cider and chips and that was that really. We teamed up with Sean Genockey and wrote STOP in a day.”
