Album Review: Georgia – Seeking Thrills

Georgia – Seeking Thrills – Album Review

If you flick through the history books or catch yourself watching an ITV2 docudrama, you may be forgiven for thinking life in Britain during World War II was great fun. There was camaraderie, home baking and people burst into song at every opportunity. Of course, life in wartime was horrific, and even those who survived the era took a long time to recover, if they ever fully could.

Listening to modern pop music, you could form the same impression of the 1980s. The 80s were grim, pulverising and terrible. However, listening to Georgia’s record, you may find yourself smiling as you look back through neon and bizarrely angled sunglasses.

This is an excellent electro pop album, placing a contemporary touch over so many familiar yet distant beats, fills and sounds. The range of styles makes it more mix-tape than album, and it’s all the better for it. About Work The Dancefloor, 24 Hours, Never Let You Go and Ray Gun are excellent, but there is rarely a bad moment.

It’s a breathless record: sometimes due to love, sometimes to dancing, and to always wanting more. If you’re Seeking Thrills, Georgia has delivered in abundance, making her mark firmly and assuredly on 2020.

 

Seeking Thrills is out on Domino Records from 10th January 2020
