LA vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Cassie Marin delivers synth-pop number “Gemini,” taken from her new album Lil 5i5. Exploring the duality of her own personality, the atmospheric production brings catchy yet emotive melodies with witty but poignant lyricism.
Built around her wispy vocals laid over catchy beats and a soft instrumentation, the track ebbs and flows between raw and feel-good sensibilities, as she threads an intricate journey through her psyche. Elaborating on the inspiration behind the track, drawn from her tendency to look at every situation from both sides, “Gemini,” is an ethereal production which in Marin’s own words is a “mood swing of a song.”
Acknowledging the duality of our mind and soul, as well as our attempts to fuse them together, she explains the meaning behind this slice of anthemic pop, saying,“The song sees me tackling one side of myself with humor and the other side of myself with passion. One side feels deserving of the good things that come to me while the other side feels stuck in an unwanted habit of self-sabotage.”
Having established her ever-evolving artistry which goes seamlessly from twinkling pop to dance music rhythms, this rising icon’s brand of pop feels like a comfort and companionship captured with earworm soundscapes. An enticing look at what we expect from her upcoming album Lil 5i5, Cassie Marin leaves us wanting more with a brilliant show of strength and vulnerability on “Gemini.”
