They can say thank you to Benny and Björn...
Gemini is a Swedish duo formed in 1985 and composed of siblings Karin and Anders Glenmark. Duo whose first album was partially written by 2 other particularly famous Swedes, Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus. Most notably known for being the founding members ... of ABBA !
A first album which was also released in 1985 from the formation of the group and which, despite the obvious quality of the composers, will find little echo with the public. Only the single "Just like that" will come out with honors and allow the group to make himself known beyond their original borders.
It will take two years and the year 1987 to see the release of the album "Geminism". Album which will hardly do better than its predecessor, except in the Scandinavian sphere. Only the single "Mio min mio" will come out of the game.
An album that will be the last of the group at the end of the century. They will reappear in the early 2000s. But that will not really change the situation concerning them on the success side ...

1985 ... a second title where we find more markedly the 'made in Abba'. All on an Intimist track that works pretty well
1985 ... a BIG year 1985 with a plethora of titles. Admittedly, the duo are not devoid of talent but Gemini is not worth ABBA, that's for sure !
1985 ... a year 1985 which never ends and which sees the duo linking title after title. But it is clear that it is flagrantly missing the stroke of genius that can make all the difference ...
1986 ... the group still does not manage to gain strength. He follows his little path without asking too many questions. Yet he should ...
1987 ... a success which will be limited only to the Scandinavian sphere. A style that is really too distinctive that does not allow the duo to envisage any planetary success
1987 ... the sound finally evolves and is already getting closer to the standards of the moment. But it's already too late, the train of success has already passed
1987 ... and speeding up the tempo considerably will not change the situation unfortunately. When the mayonnaise does not want to take, difficult to fight ...
1987 ... and we end up in local color mode. A duo that could have known glory and fame thanks to the extraordinary talent of the 2 former members of ABBA. Unfortunately failed ...
