“Such a bare bones approach only works if each of the elements- voice, lyric and texture- are put to the service of great melodies. This album thrums with the things” Sunday Times Culture Album of The Week
“Drop-dead delivery and wiseass lyrics hiding surging depths of emotion, Hannah Georgas is reminiscent of no one so much as the goddess Aimee Mann” Mojo
“Elegantly understated yet passionately expressed; a feather cutting through concrete” Notion Magazine
“A melancholic slice of electropop, showing off silky Feist-like vocals” The Independent
2014 is tipped to be the breakthrough year for Vancouverite Hannah Georgas, which begins with a upcoming nine-date UK tour in support of City and Colour, including London Hammersmith Apollo, ahead of new single ‘Enemies’, scheduled for release in February.
The live shows come off the back of the UK release of Georgas’ new s/t album (out on Dine Alone Records), which picked up press plaudits from the likes of Sunday Times Culture, Mojo and Notion upon its release in November 2013, in addition to Polaris Prize & JUNO nominations (Songwriter of The Year and Alternative Album of The Year) in Georgas’ native Canada. Recorded with Holy Fuck’s Graham Walsh, the self-titled album is the follow up to Georgas’ 2010 release ‘This Is Good’, which also picked up JUNO nominations for Songwriter of The Year and Best New Artist, and a long-list for the Canadian Polaris Music Prize. Phew.
