“Don’t be afraid to pick up your sticks and play”
Georgia feels like something of an oddity. She first hit the public eye as, in essence, a session drummer for Kate Tempest and Kwes and via a record deal with Domino has since shown her hand as a capable electro-pop songwriter; her 2015 self-titled debut album was well regarded by critics and hinted that there was better to come.
Well it’s not longer a hint, as her bombastic new single ‘Feel It’ opens this week’s podcast and is a legit banger . Structurally the track nabs the echoey synthpop blueprint of Belispeak era Purity Ring and smooshes it with the raw percussive and vocal aggression of chip tune era Crystal Castles – a fusion that in retrospect feels so obvious you wonder why no one else did it first.
