Soul-pop melody master, Gemïny, lit up the airwaves with the candour in his debut Too Close


A&R Factory

After dropping his funk-dripping soul-pop debut single, Too Close, the up-and-coming artist, Gemïny already has an army of 15k+ monthly listeners appreciating his candour, flow, and soulful approach to extending the conversation around trauma and mental health.

While keeping the vibes kicking and high, Too Close was inspired by a relationship driven by obsessive destruction and spun out of control. Mixed by Josh Florez and mastered by Jeremy Chua, the radio-ready production compliments the visceral emotions that surge through this powerfully vindicating hit.

With gritty rock nuances coursing through the single influenced by Usher, Bruno Mars and Hailey Williams, it’s a juggernaut of a soul-pop stormer.

Gemïny said:

“Too Close is a song that places you in a climactic chapter of a toxic love story, where limits are pushed past desperately failing actions, and everything spins out of control. It is a reflection on my role, a separation from the damage done, and an acceptance of how my actions played into the traumas placed on me.

“My biggest goal is to resonate with those in a darker place and show them that there is life beyond that darkness; not saying you have to put on a smile like Batman, but there is still light out there, and I’m trying to bring that out, despite everything.”

Amelia Vandergast, Executive Editor at A&R Factory said:

“I don’t know what I love more; the juicy, efficacious hooks, or Gemïny’s fearless approach to lyrical vulnerability. Too Close isn’t just one hell of a debut; it’s a public service announcement to those confined in toxic dynamics wrapped up in an earworm that demands repeat attention.”


Gemïny is a North Carolina-born, Columbia-based alt-pop artist who began his music career studying music composition at the University of South Carolina.

After a physically abusive relationship, his motivation as an artist transformed beyond his passion for music and inclination for expression.

He raised money for mental health organisations and played with cover bands at benefit concerts before turning his attention to recording his music which is an extension of his mental health advocation.

After the release of his debut single, Too Close, his sophomore single, Avalanche, will drop on June 8th and be available for pre-order from June 23rd.
