The cover and title of Georgia Barnes’ second album appear to announce an air of excitement, as the twelve tracks of Seeking Thrills (and an alternative version of Never Let You Go as a bonus track) are a veritable dance festival from start to finish. And much like many of the biggest dance floor fillers of musical history (Dancing Queen, I Wanna Dance With Somebody), Georgia uses the same theme to get everybody moving: dance. About Work The Dancefloor is, like many of the other tracks, catchy and punchy but overall liberating. 24 Hours’ main theme is also dancing, specifically the fusion of two bodies on the dance floor moving to the same beat. The musician herself stated that the inspiration behind the musical production of the project was first and foremost Chicago’s house and Detroit’s techno scenes. The end result is a mixture of energy and emotion, exemplified by the evocative lyrics of strong feelings (Feel It), a sense of urgency (I Can’t Wait) and even the shivers associated with the notion of danger (Thrill). Also worth noting is the image from the album cover is a shot from the work of American photographer and documentarian Nancy Honey, who gave Georgia access to her archives from the 1980s. © Nicolas Magenham/Qobuz

Stepping into the spotlight after years of working as a session drummer, Georgia Barnes (daughter of Leftfield's Neil Barnes) introduces herself as a striking presence with her eponymous full-length debut. Her distinctly British style of experimental pop music features caustic, buzzing bass and jagged beats reminiscent of grime, as well as distorted vocals and acid techno synth lines. It's easy enough to compare her to M.I.A. or Micachu, especially given the deadpan vocals and city-dwelling lyrics of single "Move Systems," but Georgia's vocals are more often reminiscent of Kate Bush, and when pitched down a bit, as on "Hold It," she starts to sound like Alison Moyet. Her percussion tracks are wonderfully busy, banging and clanging and bringing out the rough edge in her alternately sweet and rugged vocals. "Tell Me About It" successfully pays homage to Timbaland's classic late-'90s productions for artists such as Aaliyah, utilizing stuttering, staccato drum programming, springy synths, and vocal ad-libs without managing to sound like a direct imitation and still sounding fresh. Her lyrics typically deal with the thorny, emotionally devastating side of relationships, and songs like "Nothing Solutions" and "You" are particularly heart-rending. Georgia is highly skilled at crafting enjoyable, creative pop songs out of sonic elements that might seem jarring and subject matter that could potentially be uncomfortable. Armed with several strong songs, Georgia is an impressive, inventive debut. ~ Paul Simpson
