Appearing less than a year after the Technicolor panoply of 2012's Island Fire, Gemma Ray 's fifth LP, Down Baby Down, takes a more thematic approach, offering up a succinct ten-song cycle meant to play out as a self-declared fantasy soundtrack. Mixing cinematic instrumental tracks and moody femme-fatale ballads, Ray channels her love of retro, '60s-inspired kitsch into a bewitching set that feels a bit like Joe Meek producing Nancy Sinatra. The low, midnight surf tones of opener "The Low Rising" mingle with sultry wordless vocal sections and brushed drums, setting.

Milk For Your Motors. Gemma Ray's debut album, The Leader, was co-produced by Michael J Sheehy of the band Dream City Film Club. Released on 2 June 2008, it featured the single "Hard Shoulder", "Name Your Lord". Unable to tour the album as a result of being struck down by illness, Ray wrote and recorded the album Lights Out Zoltar! In 2018, The Leader was reissued on vinyl as an exclusive Record Store Day release to mark its 10th anniversary.

With some brand new songs written, Gamma Ray entered the studio under the supervision of producer Tommy Newton and recorded their second album Sigh No More, which was released in September 1991. The style differed vastly from that of Heading for Tomorrow, featuring darker lyrics inspired by the Persian Gulf War that was raging at the time. So at that point we made an album like this and it went down very successful. That was cool, that was something special. I think it was the album that gave Gamma Ray the acceptance as being a band not only a Kai Hansen project. In 1995 the fourth album, Land of the Free, the first to feature Hansen on vocals, was released. The album was universally praised by critics and fans alike.

Mixing cinematic instrumental tracks and moody femme-fatale ballads, Ray channels her love of retro, '60s-inspired kitsch into a bewitching set that feels a bit like Joe Meek producing Nancy Sinatra. The low, midnight surf tones of opener "The Low Rising" mingle with sultry wordless vocal sections and brushed drums, setting the album's overall film noir tone. Gozo Theme" explores a richer sonic palette with misty harpsichord synth tones, Farfisa organs, and coquettishly whispered French phrases appearing amid Ray's dense vocal stacks.
