Second album from the wonderous Georgia. Georgia is seeking a thrill. Her new album, Seeking Thrills, is a musically daring story of hedonism, self-discovery, and above all, the transcendental power of the dancefloor.
Inspired by the Chicago House and Detroit Techno of the early 80s, Seeking Thrills is a sonic feat of exploration and excellence, with textures that reflect Georgia’s background in ethnic musicology, and hours upon hours spent rifling through records. Feminine without being saccharine, Georgia’s deep, brooding reflections carry us through euphoria, heartache and melancholy but always with the memory of the good times.
Started Out, the first single Georgia released from Seeking Thrills, is an upbeat pop twist on Mr Fingers’ Can You Feel It, and as Georgia sings you can almost hear the smile: “We are wicked young fools who behave / Back in the arms of somebody who saved us”. Its release was shortly followed by About Work The Dancefloor, a synth-charged, Robyn-adjacent pop song with a delicious hook. Both were runaway hits. The album is underpinned with sense of melancholy and vulnerability, but with a real sense of power,
Seeking Thrills fuses analogue club sounds with stunning pop songwriting, and showcases Georgia’s lifelong love affair with the drums. As a session drummer, making her name playing and collaborating with Micachu, Kwes, and Kate Tempest, she used her technical knowledge to replicate set-ups from 80s house and techno.
