‘Nothing Solutions’ is the next single to be released from the multi-instrumentalist, producer and songwriter, Georgia, on 7th August 2015. It is the second single taken from the North West Londoner’s highly anticipated eponymous debut album, also released on 7th August 2015. The accompanying video, which features Georgia being pursued through a dense forest, was directed by Courtney Phillips, who had the following to say about his work:

‘The initial idea for this was to have Georgia running away from something in the forest, only to find out she’s actually running with them - leading the pack. It was key to keep the visuals feeling mysterious and ambiguous, leaving the meaning open to the viewer’s interpretation - but some might say she's running from her demons. We brought the forest to life by transforming it in to a hyper real environment, injecting artificial colours in to a natural space."


We are also pleased to reveal the album artwork for ‘Georgia’, designed by internationally renowned auteurs MMParis, featuring a portrait by esteemed photographer Jamie Hawkesworth:

Written, performed and produced by Barnes in its entirety and recorded in her own home-studio, ‘Georgia’ is the product of two years of obsessive work, but also a young lifetime of voracious music listening.

Elements of the glacial yet hyper-melodic tone of early 00's grime, sweltering, mid-summer west London dub and ragga, sophisticated pop, first wave post-punk agitation, the formative influence of Missy Elliott and the high-concept, illuminated sound-design work of contemporary artists such as The Knife and Hudson Mohawke run through ‘Georgia’, a record that reveals new layers of intrigue and ingenuity with every listen. 

Georgiawill be available on CD (WIGCD357), LP (WIGLP357), Deluxe LP (WIGLP357X) and Digital (WIG357D). The Deluxe LP comes with a bonus 10”.  You can pre-order the album via Dom Mart or iTunes.  Pre-orders will feature 5 instant grats - Intro, Move Systems, Be Ache, Nothing Solutions and Digits.
