Check out Leeds newcomer Gemini Aaliyah’s gloriously atmospheric new track, ‘Moonrise’

A broody, scuzzy, atmospheric gem, 'Moonrise' arrives ahead of an appearance at the inaugural Drown U Out Festival at Leeds University Union.

Leeds newcomer Gemini Aaliyah has shared a new single, ‘Moonrise’.

Following up on last year’s ‘cool kids are overrated’ and ‘RUNAWAY (a gift to you)’, Gemini explains: “My life through my eyes is like a fucked up fairy tale where the ghetto meets the goth girl. This song feels like the beginning of that story. The lyrics of the song first describe my own death, like the death of parts of me I want to let go of ‘I gave up gave in, now the ground is just feeding on my skin’ – the songs main purpose is to talk about the empowering energy that comes with rebirth, like the moon rising, bringing light to darkness and a strong female energy – I think more strong feminine energy is what we need in the world.”

A broody, scuzzy, atmospheric gem, ‘Moonrise’ arrives ahead of an appearance at the inaugural Drown U Out Festival at Leeds University Union next month, where Gemini will appear alongside the likes of Bob Vylan, Ho99o9 and guccihighwaters.
