"Gemini's archetype is known as The Twins, therefore I created 'Gemini I' & 'Gemini II'. There is no container big enough for all the different selves we hold. Both songs are the same yet expressed differently, which felt fitting since Gemini governs communication and connection. Both touch on these themes heavily, as the protagonist gets lost in an exchange of words with someone new. Even before meeting them, he's attracted to their energy. Given Gemini's element is air, both versions express a lightness musically, and much like air picks up, both get more intense as the relationship develops. While 'Gemini I' keeps things more intimate like a secret, 'Gemini II' allows itself to be more wild and free."
