Gem Club: Twins (Directed By: BriAnna Olson)
What you are about to see is an excellent pairing of the audio and the visual. A really great concept. The song is by Gem Club, a duo consisting of two classically trained musicians: singer, writer, and pianist Christopher Barnes, and cellist Kristen Drymala. They have experienced much success since meeting in 2009; and it is just the beginning since they have recently been signed by Seattle’s Hardly Art label. New attention, new music, new success, and new videos; this one was perfect.

directed this as well as a few other projects for the duo and had this to say about Gem Club and the Twins
The instant I heard Christopher’s voice, performing at Cloud Club in Boston, I knew our partnership was inevitable â€” there was just this resonance that cut right through me in a way that might as well have been a banner that read, “Welcome Home.” Likewise, my creative relationships with featured performers Eva Perrotta and Michael Pope hold an endless potential and magnetism that seems to pull us together as contemporaries in New York City. This sets the stage for the video. There are the times you can be blindsided by someone new in ways that seem beyond anything speakable. Suddenly, you’re purging these emotions as you’re faced with feeling exposed and vulnerable and falling, willfully or not, into the immense amount of intimacy you were born to share.
