TRAVEL TO SOUTHEAST ASIA WITH GEMINI IN THE STUNNING NEW “TIME TO SHARE” VIDEO
Earlier this month, I posted a link to listen to Gemini’s (Thomas Slinger) new single “Time To Share”, a vivid, verdant electronic pop infused track with intercontinental influence. Now, the UK electronic artist debuts the stunning visual to accompany the track. Shot by Slinger himself during a 3-month voyage across South East Asia, what follows is a mesmerising and transportive video.
Speaking about the video, Slinger explains:
“Given the current political climate of the world – I wanted to share that there are many incredible people, beautiful untouched landscapes and so many positive things happening. Time To Share was filmed over 3 months – My girlfriend and I went on a life changing experience that took place across South East Asia. We climbed volcanoes, explored ancient civilisations, met the kindest people and cared for gentle giants. Each and every moment was magical. It took all of my strength to produce this video but I’m looking forward to shooting more and I’m so proud to finally share it.”
Following the reveal of his breathtaking Wanderlust teaser video UK electronic artist Gemini (Thomas Slinger) reveals the lead single “Time To Share” from his forthcoming 2016 debut album Wanderlust.
Out today, “Time To Share” is vivid, verdant electronic pop infused with intercontinental influence. The track premiered yesterday via La Belle Musique and is now available to share via Gemini’s Soundcloud.
The first new music from Gemini in more than two years, the track sees the former dubstep overachiever beloved by Annie Mac and Zane Lowe embrace a lush, cinematic new sound inspired by his travels abroad.
Following the success of solo singles such as “Blue” and mixes for A-listers (Ellie Goulding, Lana Del Rey), Slinger felt compelled to break beyond genre boundaries. He retreated to a studio to radically rethink his sounds—and promptly got writer’s block. He packed up his belongings, left Britain and set out to travel the world, reigniting his musical creativity and discovering a latent talent for travel photography and film (catalogued via his expansive @ThisIsGemini Instagram account and in the Wanderlust Teaser) as he explored Norway, Sweden, Malaysia, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, Burma and more.
Channeling these cross-continental explorations into the intensely personal music on Wanderlust, Singer’s creative vision is now fully formed. Get your first taste of it now and listen to “Time To Share”.
“Thank you for being so patient. I’ve been on a journey of self-discovery that has led me to the darkest and most beautiful places on earth. From the northern lights of Norway and desolate lands of Iceland to discovering lost civilisations and climbing mountains deep in the heart of Asia.” – Thomas Slinger a.k.a. Gemini
