In hindsight, there was really no doubt that Georgia would become an established name in the underground electronic scene. With her father Neil Barnes, one half of Leftfield, she was exposed to the rave life at a very young age and it is this youthful exuberance to the sound that made her such an engaging artist throughout 2019. Yet while she has been working on her career for many years up until now, there has been so much buzz surrounding the release of 'Seeking Thrills' that it feels like a new beginning for the frontwoman as she finally breaks through to the mainstream with a diverse and exciting new collection.
From the start, 'Seeking Thrills' is looking to both distance and embrace the alternative pop sound that artists like Charli XCX and Tove Lo have been pushing these last few years. While it is clear that she is looking to rope herself in with that crowd, she is also coopting her own unique take on the direction, giving us a new and fresh angle to it. The gear change from 'About Work The Dancefloor' into 'Never Let You Go' highlights this eclectic feel right from the start, allowing her to go in almost any direction she feels and creating an enjoyable and captivating new release.
She may have been a cult name for these last couple of years, but Georgia is soon to become one of this country's favourite electronic artists. Walking in the footsteps of La Roux and Robyn, 'Seeking Thrills' is a perfect step for her in her career and may this not be the last time we hear from her.
