‘Seeking Thrills’, the second album from North London multi-instrumentalist/producer Georgia Barnes aka Georgia, comes some five years after her eponymous debut effort ‘Georgia’.
The Brit School graduate has used the interim period to hone her songwriting skills to the extent that ‘Seeking Skills’ has, to some extent, the feel of an ‘80s ‘Now That’s What I Call Music’ album due to the multi-genre soundscapes and sense of nostalgia generated by dancefloor-ready tracks such as the Chicago-House infused Started Out and the Robyn-esque About Work The Dancefloor.
‘Seeking Thrills’ drips with carefree, radio-ready choruses such as the indie-electro bop Never Let You Go. It’s little wonder then that five of the album’s 12 tracks have already been singles.
It’s not all gooey though, Feel It pushes Georgia into the kind of guttural electro soundscape you’d expect to find K-Flay occupying, while Ultimate Sailor sees Georgia experimenting with ‘70s sci-fi synths and Ray Guns points towards her love of M.I.A and Missy Elliott.
‘Seeking Thrills’ is a respectable sophomore effort that will surely lead to Georgia being an in-demand songwriter in the coming years.
