Gemini Club are the Chicago-based band of producer/keyboardist Dan Brunelle, lead singer/guitarist Tom Gavin, DJ/electronics Gordon Bramli and drummer Ryan Luciani. The CHI crew broke through last year with their Sirius Alt Nation #2, the anthemic “Sparklers”. Here, GC return with the rhythmic indie rock and roll of “Fret and Regret”.

We’re very pleased to B3 Premiere “Fret and Regret” the new single from Gemini Club.
