Georgia

Post-punky hip-hop soul. That was how Georgia Barnes described her sound shortly after her eponymous debut in 2015. In other words, it’s different and it looks interesting. She’s the daughter of Neil Barnes, the brains behind Leftfield. This duo brought electronic music to the masses in the 1990s, along with The Chemical Brothers, The Prodigy and Underworld. Georgia started playing drums at the age of eight and moved onto synths later on. Even so, at first it appeared she would take a completely different direction: for a long time she was a member of Arsenal women’s football team. But music won out. Georgia became British spoken word artist Kate Tempest’s drummer before going her own way. The multi-instrumentalist presents new material that is still very much post-punk but also firmly aimed at the dancefloor.
