You know when an artist comes back from a break, and you really feel like something fundamental has shifted? Well, for me, I’m getting that feeling from the new music coming from UK producer/multi-instrumentalist/vocalist/ Georgia. She already proved an immense amount of talent on her debut record, but it felt brash at times, and maybe if I’m being brutal, a touch unstructured… there were so many ideas, the cohesion wasn’t there. BUT, ‘About Work The Dancefloor’ is flawless. To me it signals that there’s been a shift towards the dark, synthwave influenced pop that shone on her debut, and it just works. The track builds upon the foundations of a rumbling 80s synth line, but Georgia’s vocals are front and centre, they’re powerful and emotional. They work in the same way that Robyn’s do, creating an emotional space within electronic production. In a scene that often speaks about nothing, tracks like this offer deeper insight, while allowing you to dance away the pain. Is Georgia the new Robyn? No, not yet. But one day, she might be. One to watch.
