Iconic Swiss band The Beauty Of Gemina released their first UK single Apologise via TBOG MUSIC, taken from their forthcoming album Skeleton Dreams. The track is a powerful slice of indie-rock led by Michael Sele’s strong and narrative voice. “This song is full of light and darkness about the human dilemma, knowing the time to say good-bye but having no words to say It” says Sele. Sele spoke with The Fountain about the single in more depth as well as his plans for 2020.
TF: You have a new single out, what has the reception been like to Apologise?
The feedback from the fans is fantastic. They like the beat, the flow of the guitars and the melancholic but optimistic voice. Even a few Radio Stations in Switzerland are playing the song but most of them refused – “too dark” they said. Sadly, they don’t hear the light in the song!
TF: How would you sum it up in one sentence?
I ‘Apologise’ for them! (Laughs)
TF: Who do you look to and idolise when it comes to influences with this track?
I read in a few comments on Facebook that the vibe of our music reminds people of The Cure and others thought they hear Chris Rea. It’s quite a gap but I have no problem when every listener feels different. Music is very associative.
TF: What is your plan for the remainder of the year, after this single release?
We will play a few concerts in Switzerland in October. Then there are plans to make further video clips. Due the pandemic crisis we had to postpone all shows in Germany and other countries so we’re planning to do a special streaming concert for our international communities.
