Georgia Barnes is an ex-soccer player and current singer-songwriter-grime musician, which is a combination of things that you wouldn’t expect to work, but does. Georgia’s debut isn’t nearly as abrasive or energetic as its press has described it as being, but it’s a fairly inventive record fitting in neatly with the renaissance of experimental-electronic-influenced pop music. 

“Kombine” is built around a Qawwali sample, “Nothing Solutions” has elements of acid house, and “Heart Wrecking Animals” is influenced simultaneously by Prince and Oneohtrix Point Never. 

Georgia is recommended if you like FKA Twigs, Tune-Yards, or Micachu.
