WITH a tangible buzz beginning to surround her and a deal with Columbia Records in the bag, it looks like 21 year old singer Georgie is going to be the latest artist to make a huge impact on the UK music scene.
With a new band in tow, she has revealed her brilliant debut single ‘Company of Thieves’; a powerful and imposing introduction which will not go unnoticed. Fuelled by her honest and confrontational lyrics from the outset (“Did I come to your flat with a sign on my back saying screw me over/ Did you think we were friends while you made your plans for me to discover”), the song’s power lies in her incredible vocal delivery, adding a distinctive grit to the verses before howling with defiance on the chorus. It works wonderfully with the soulful production, full of brooding basslines, electronic nuances and backing vocals, as her classic sixties influences come to the fore. With its cool vintage feel, the track carries the kind of weight that would come with a lifetime of experience, sounding well beyond her 21 years.
Georgie is playing some massive gigs this Autumn when she will be supporting Blossoms and Jake Bugg on their respective tours, before returning to Virginia to work with Matthew E White on her debut album.
