The Unlikely Candidates recently released their new radio single for Gemini. The band has had a crazy year and a half with the success of their track, Novocaine, during an unlikely time with the pandemic and after nearly 15 years in the business and all signs point to another amazing year with the release of Gemini, a new album in the works, and their headline tour.
«Gemini is about the face we show the ones we love and the face we keep for ourselves, and all that is lost in translation between the two», states The Unlikely Candidates frontman Kyle Morris. «I was coming to the end of a relationship where I felt like I didn’t really know the other person because I never saw that true unfiltered side of them and they never saw that side of me. As the relationship fell apart the distance between those two faces got wider and it became a guessing game of what we were thinking and feeling. It finally ended and I never completely got to know who that other person was. We both had two faces but all we ever showed was one».
«We have never really cared what kind of song we wrote as long as it was good. We are big fans of The Beatles and Blur for that. So when we started writing for the album we took off all the filters and stopped caring what someone might want to hear from us and let our influences run wild. Out of that Gemini was born and it’s one of my favorite things we’ve ever done. Even though it may be one of the most different songs we’ve written in some respects, it also felt just as honest to who we are».
Gemini follows the release of The Unlikely Candidates’ previous radio singles, High Low and the band’s breakout song Novocaine.
The Unlikely Candidates is Kyle Morris (vocals), Brenton Carney (lead guitar), Cole Male (guitar), Jared Hornbeek (bass) and Kevin Goddard (drums).
