New Video: Introducing the Classic Soul Channeling Sound of Nottingham UK’s Georgie

Influenced by Fleetwood Mac, Carole King, Janis Joplin, The Pretenders, Crosby Stills and Nash, Carly Simon, The Mamas and the Papas and First Aid Kit, Georgie is a 21 year-old, up-and-coming, Nottingham, UK-based singer/songwriter, who caught the attention of the folks at Spacebomb Records — the label home of Natalie Prass and Julien Baker — for a vocal style that sounds straight out of the mid 1960s and for a lyrical bent that belies her years. Her debut single “Company of Thieves” pairs her husky and soulful vocals with a wah-wah pedaled guitar,  a strutting horn arrangement, a sinuous bass line, a steady backbeat and an infectious hook in a carefully crafted song that will remind most listeners of Amy Winehouse, Nancy Sinatra and others.

The Nottingham-based singer/songwriter will be returning to Spacebomb Records’ Richmond, VA studio to finish her full-length in 2017; but in the meantime, the recently released music video follows a leather jacket clad Georgie walking through the nighttime streets of a European town as a variety of criminal activities and fights ensue. And in some way, the video portrays its characters in dysfunctional and psychologically damaging relationships or being thrown into dangerous situations and it gives the video a surreal feel.
