Georgie has released her surprise new album At Home and mixed with perfect summer vibes and Adele style tracks, it’s sure to be worth your time.
One word that comes to mind when listening to Georgie’s record is easy-going. In the opening track Company, the acoustic guitar takes charge of the song and provides us with tablespoons of sweetness. Her laidback voice and simple rhythmic choices throughout this song make it incredibly easy to listen to. When the piano enters, the splash of jazz adds colour to the song to keep it interesting which is later also seen in the trumpet stabs.
Something that Georgie seems to excel at is writing uplifting and catchy choruses which manage to make the listener feel good. Significantly shown in Chasing Kites, this track uses the strong lyrics “Someday I’ll meet someone who wants me” intertwined in a song all about wanting someone who craves another’s attention. Now We’re Lonely uses gorgeous choir harmonies to add to the inspiring chorus and create a large difference to the synth-y, R&B style verses. These subtle transformations between the two sections are cleverly executed and create a lasting effect on not only the track itself, but the listener too.
Simple Things begins as a beautiful ballad, with an Adele-like melody that sounds almost recognisable. You soon catch yourself humming along without even knowing it. It has the ability to relax your body and mind and tune out from the world’s chaos and focus solely on the piano and Georgie’s stunning voice.
Taking a darker turn, Unrequited Love is all about falling for someone who only wanted you physically. With samples sounding like screams in the background, you are immediately drawn into Georgie’s story. Her voice really suits this style of song and with a chorus that makes you want to belt out each word, the bad bitch attitude that is kept inside finally escapes as you remember your self-worth.
The final song on this album, Blue Waters, sounds completely different to anything you’ve heard previously. The fun synth part and cool guitars bring the song to life and instantly make you want to dance along. What makes this song a standout track on the album is the summery trumpet part that comes in at the second chorus and stays throughout the rest of the track.
Georgie can make a range of songs stand out. Knowing how to not overdo her tracks with too many instruments and effects is a great thing that Georgie can excel at and her vocals and songwriting capabilities make this album a perfect summer hit.
